Save Nurturing Families Network in New Haven and Hartford
CT General Assembly and Governor Dannel Malloy
Coaltion to Save Nurturing Families
More Info at:
Children and families participating in Nurturing Families have proven, through extensive evaluation, to improve maternal and prenatal health; decrease low birth weight and premature babies; decrease teen pregnancy; decrease special education services through early detection and intervention for developmental delays; decrease child abuse, neglect and injuries and promote positive father involvement. The community-based (non-hospital) sites serve 700 families annually and provide a critical safety net in a cost effective manner, saving the state millions in child welfare services.
We urge support for Nurturing Families Network and respectfully request the restoration of $3.2 million in the state budget to ensure all children can reach their potential.
