United States Senator Cory Booker visited the Partnership’s Paterson Office on August 20th, 2014, to announce the continuation of funding for maternal / child home visitation programs supported by the federal Department of Health and Human Services. Senator Booker also took the time to recognize Family Support and Assessment Workers, Nurse Home Visitors, and Parent Educators for their outstanding involvement in free home-visitation programs. These programs connect our specially trained staff with pregnant women and young families throughout Northern New Jersey for regular home visits. Our staff provide young mothers with knowledge, support, and resources to build their confidence and create a healthy life for themselves and their babies. Senator Booker’s visit was covered in the New Jersey Herald and The Record.
