The Nursing-Legal Partnership celebrated its three-year anniversary at the beginning of 2019. Since the program was launched in 2016, Nursing-Legal Partnership staff have achieved significant program outcomes, including: 
  • Over 2,400 screenings have been conducted to proactively identify health-harming legal needs among pregnant women and new mothers.
  • More than 400 women and families have received legal services to address those needs.
  • Over 65% of client respondents said their stress levels decreased following Nursing-Legal Partnership services.
  • Home visiting nurses say they’re better equipped than ever to meet the complex social needs of families. 
  • A total of $1.3 million in economic case benefits to clients were estimated over the three-year period.

4th Annual Community Action Day
The Nursing-Legal Partnership will be co-hosting the 4th annual Community Action Day on July 20 in Philadelphia at Sturgis playground. This day was created in order to hear directly from the families we serve about policy issues that affect their lives.

This year the theme is “The change you want to see and the vision for the future.” Community organizations, including the nurse-led LATCH committee, focused on breastfeeding, Vetri Mobile Teaching Kitchen, Read by 4th, the Free Library of Philadelphia, and others will offer families a chance to learn more about civic engagement, be connected to resources, meet some of their elected officials, as well as family fun and entertainment.
