The Healthy Start Coalition

In Northeast Florida too many babies die from preventable causes and lack of health services. The Healthy Start Coalition leads a cooperative community effort to reduce infant mortality and improve the health of children, childbearing women and their families in Northeast Florida.

I am a Healthy Start Employer

The Coalition's newest initiative was created to certify organizations who provide parenting resources to their staff. I am a Healthy Start Employer aligns with your values as an employer to invest in the health of your workplace and community.

"The Coalition brings together key partners to support investment in services that support the healthy development of babies, our community's most valuable citizens."
