Media Advisory: 11:30 a.m., June 12 ceremony honoring inspiring moms (and their cute toddlers)

Children's Services Council of Palm Beach County
June 11, 2018

You are invited to a special ceremony honoring mothers who have completed the innovative Nurse-Family Partnership program in Palm Beach County.

The program serves at-risk, first-time moms during their pregnancy and beyond. Each mom-to-be is paired with a nurse who regularly meets with her until her child turns 2 years old. The nurses help teach the moms how to raise happy, healthy children while encouraging the moms to continue with their own life goals.

Tuesday’s event will honor a group of moms who have been with the program from their pregnancy until their child turned 2 years old. The moms and toddlers will graduate from the program on:

Date/time: Tuesday, June 12, from 11:30 a.m. - 2 p.m.

Location: Lake Pavilion, 101 S. Flagler Drive, West Palm Beach

Nurse-Family Partnership is in its 10th year in Palm Beach County with more than 380 families having graduated to date. The national program is run locally by the Florida Department of Health and funded by Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County. National studies, as well as a recent evaluation of the program in Palm Beach County, demonstrate that Nurse-Family Partnership gets results. The local evaluation found that Palm Beach County mothers who participated in the program had a lower risk of maternal depression and better prenatal care.
