Nurse-Family Partnership, Building Blocks Program

The Nurse-Family Partnership is a national organization providing support, education, and counseling on health, behavioral, self-sufficiency, and parenting issues for first-time, low-income parents. It accomplishes its mission through home visitation by highly educated registered nurses. In the state of Missouri, this fantastic program is called Building Blocks, and it is available to residents of both St. Louis County and St. Louis City who meet their enrollment criteria.

One of my friends, who is a nurse in the Building Blocks program, recommended me to the national office (thanks!) to photograph one of her home visits. I aimed to candidly capture their visit - including the overall scene, some details, and pictures of the nurse, client, and her daughter.

Here are some of my favorites:
