NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - A national program that helps low-income, first-time mothers is marking a milestone in South Carolina.
A 1-year anniversary celebration is being held Tuesday at a Nurse-Family Partnership site in North Charleston.
Tuesday's program at Mt. Moriah Baptist Church will feature program leaders and local officials discussing the site's progress since it was established a year ago.
Through the program, first-time mothers meet with a registered nurse early in pregnancy. Then the nurses continue home visits until the child reaches its sceond birthday.
