The AHA became aware of the need for housing by participants in Tarrant County’s Nurse Family Partnership Program. The Nurse Family Partnership Program provides supportive services for first time pregnant women. Registered Nurses act as mentors during pregnancy, and for two years after the birth of the child. The program accomplishments include improved prenatal care, improved child health and development, and improved family economic self-sufficiency. It was determined that Neighborhood Stabilization Funds (NSP) funds could be used to provide housing for this program, and architectural plans developed for this unique purpose.
Included in the design are:
- Ground Floor
- Live-in supervisor living suite with bedroom, closets, bath, and dressing and parlor
- Large great room, open dining and large open kitchen with pantry, laundry, and two-car garage
- Second Floor
- Two sets of bedroom suites; private dressing and shared bath and toilet room for each suite
- Large common sitting area and study area with computer terminals
