The Nurturing Families Network (NFN) helps first-time parents manage the challenges of parenthood by providing a system of continuous care designed to promote positive parenting through telephone support, parenting groups as well as home visiting for eligible parents. NFN staff work in partnership with parents to enhance their strengths, provide education and create community connections. Participation in the program is free and voluntary for all families.
The Connecticut Children’s Trust Fund sponsors the Nurturing Families Network of family support programs existing in all birthing hospitals in Connecticut. For additional information, contact Helma Gregorich at 203-324-3167.
