With support from Elizabeth A. Hudspeth Endowment Fund of the Cumberland Community Foundation, the Partnership for Children is implementing a new Family Connects Cumberland program. This program follows the evidence-based model of Family Connects International.

Family Connects Cumberland is a community-wide in-home nurse visiting program available to Cumberland County families with newborns.

The program is simple: A registered nurse visits a family’s home around 3 weeks after birth to check on mom, baby, and the whole family. There is no cost to the family, and anyone living in Cumberland County with a newborn can participate, including foster and adoptive parents.

What does Family Connects Cumberland do?

  • Connects with every family member in the home of a newborn.
  • Provides a health check for mother and baby.
  • Offers education, support, and answers about newborn care.
  • Connects families to resources and supports based on their individual needs and preferences.
  • Enhances communication and data-driven decision-making between community partners and organizations, all to better address families’ needs.
