Adopt a Family for the First 1000 Days

NFP Winter Wishes Babies Opening Gifts

St. Luke’s Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) is a voluntary, evidence-based home visitation program in which Registered Nurses with specialized education visit low-income, first-time at-risk mothers during the critical first 1,000 days between the beginning of a mother's pregnancy and her child's second birthday. During this time, the baby's brain is developing, which has a significant impact on growth, learning, and overall health later in life. The three goals of the program make a tremendous impact by supporting mothers with tools to improve pregnancy outcomes, child health and development and families’ economic self-sufficiency.

Want to make an impact the whole year through? We invite you to adopt an NFP family to invest in the first 1,000 days of a child's life—a time when significant development occurs. Your gift of $1,000 will not only provide a gift this winter, but it will also support ongoing resources throughout the two-and-a-half-year program.

As a recognized 501 (c) (3) charitable organization, any gift you make to St. Luke's is tax deductible.

If you would prefer to make your gift in installments, please download this form, which can be mailed to: St. Luke's University Health Network, Development Office, 801 Ostrum Street, Bethlehem, PA 18015
