With an unwavering commitment to serve more families with comprehensive services, meet their unique needs and create transformational change across generations, Nurse-Family Partnership and Child First have joined together to create a more holistic continuum of care for families and children experiencing the effects of poverty and adversity.
The families who participate in these two voluntary home visitation programs have a strong desire to overcome the challenges they face and change the trajectory of their lives and the lives of their children. We are working side-by-side to create positive change, including improved individual, family and population health outcomes for communities across the country.
Lead-Free Families is a community health initiative of Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health aimed at creating a strong pathway to eliminate childhood lead poisoning in Lancaster County.
It is the first comprehensive childhood lead poisoning prevention program in the United States to be initially funded entirely by a health system. LG Health has committed to investing $50 million over 10 years to identify and remediate lead health hazards in at least 2,800 homes across the county.
