"Mission Statement: A statewide association that develops and supports local systems of care to optimize the health of moms, babies, and their families."

Who We Are

We work collectively to improve outcomes for mothers, babies and families in the state of Florida. The Healthy Start Program was enacted into legislation in 1991. There are 31 Coalitions in Florida. Click here to find the Coalition nearest you.

What We Do

We work in our communities to implement Healthy Start services and activities such as home visiting, care coordination, breastfeeding support, parenting healthcare navigation and prenatal care. Each coalition uses data and research to design a service delivery plan unique to their community.

Where We Are Going

We have new and exciting initiatives being implemented across the state. These include workforce development, changes to our health navigation system and research based programming.

Learn how we are transforming services for moms and babies!
