Nurse Family Partnership
Dina Chavez, Health Department
Discuss and consider authorizing the Corpus Christi-Nueces County Public Health District to enter into an amended contract with the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) for the Texas Nurse-Family Partnership Program providing for a nurse-led maternal health and home visitation program in the amount of $615,000, for the period of July 23, 2012 to August 31, 2013; authorize Annette Rodriguez, M.P.H., Director of the Corpus Christi-Nueces County Public Health District, to sign on behalf of Nueces County.
The contract will allow personnel to introduce vulnerable first-time parents to caring maternal and child health nurses through a home visitation program that starts during 28 weeks of pregnancy. This nurse-led maternal health and home visitation program partners low-income, first-time moms with maternal and child health nurses. Resulting in a trusted relationship that gives these moms the support they need to have a healthy pregnancy, improve their child’s health and development, and become more economically self-sufficient.
The Corpus Christi-Nueces County Public Health District is in receipt of Contract No. HHSC 529-12-0066-00005A with HHSC to provide funding for a nurse-led maternal health and home visitation program to improve pregnancy outcomes, child health and development, reduce child abuse and neglect, reduce domestic violence among participants and improve family economic self-sufficiency and stability.
