Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) is a nationally recognized, evidence-based home visiting program that helps first-time moms develop the skills they need to prepare for the birth of their child and empowers new moms to become confident parents and strong women, and ultimately, give their babies the best possible start in life. The Merced County Department of Public Health engaged JSI to create an engaging and approachable website for their NFP program targeted to low-income, first-time mothers in Merced County as well as healthcare providers.

JSI created the website based on program needs, including included sections for potential clients, providers, and community partners. JSI also provided training to program staff for website maintenance.
