Nurse-Family Partnership

First-Time Pregnancy

Nurse-Family Partnership® is a nurse-led, evidence based home visitation program proven to significantly improve the health, well-being, and economic self-sufficiency for children and their families. Nurse-Family Partnership matches each first-time mothers-to-be with a registered nurse who visits her in her home during and after pregnancy. The visits continue after the birth of her baby until the child turns two years old. Nurse-Family Partnership is a free program to all eligible women.

In addition to providing health education about pregnancy and newborn care, the nurse is a source of support and resources in all areas which the client finds a need. Together, they work to accomplish goals set by the mother, such as continuing their educational path and employment. With over 30 years of experience, Nurse-Family Partnership currently serves more than 30,000 families in 43 states, 6 tribal communities, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Positive outcomes for clients served by Texas’ Nurse-Family Partnership include:

  • 89% babies born are full term
  • 91% babies born are at a healthy weight
  • 87% of mothers initiate breastfeeding
  • 93% of children received all recommended immunizations by 24 months

"Instead of the tense feeling people normally get when they go to the dentist I was more relaxed. It was great to not have to sit and wait. It was a pleasant experience."

Community Healthcare Center (CHC), like other healthcare organizations, has experienced a drastic increase in COVID-19 symptomatic visits from its existing patients and the local community. Due to the related increase in patient volume and decrease in staffing and other resources, CHC has made temporary changes in its patient acceptance policies.

Specifically, CHC will continue to provide the same high quality and quantity of services to our existing patients; however, we will only be accepting new patients within the following vulnerable populations:

• Ages 20 and under,
• Ages 65 and older, or
• Pregnant women.

Persons within the ages of 21 through 64 who are not pregnant and are not already an established CHC patient will need to seek primary care services elsewhere. We will look forward to being able to begin accepting new patients from all age groups and both maternity statuses as soon as possible.

Again, all current patients are welcomed to continue receiving whatever primary care services we offer from us whenever they need it, and regardless of their COVID-19 vaccine status. Any new patients that we can accept (ages 20 and under, 65 and older, or that are pregnant), will continue to be welcomed too, also regardless of their COVID-19 vaccine status.

COVID-19 vaccines are available for all qualified individuals, patient or not, ages 12 and older. Individuals wanting to be vaccinated may schedule their COVID-19 vaccination by calling (940) 766-6306. However, simply receiving a COVID-19 vaccine from CHC does not establish you as a CHC patient.
