Additional Information:

• Nurse-Family Partnership pairs a YW bachelor-degreed nurse with a first-time mother. From pregnancy through the baby's second birthday, mother and nurse will have over 60 home visits preparing for a healthy pregnancy and birth, learning to care for her newborn, and building toward family self-sufficiency. • Women's Health provides breast health services to women who are uninsured or underinsured through mammogram and diagnostic screenings and patient navigation to access preventive care and treatment. • Financial Empowerment is the only asset-building program in Dallas County that provides a full menu of free financial education programming to include training, matched savings, personal financial coaching, banking products, and budgeting tools used to increase long-term financial stability. • Women's Enterprise provides business training, finance skills and personal development for women looking to launch or expand a microenterprise. The program begins with business plan education and training and continues with mentoring from industry experts and eventually access to capital.
