Welcome

The Healthy Start Coalition of Brevard County is a local, non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that works to make sure that all moms and babies have the services they need to begin healthy lives together.

Healthy Babies Start With Healthy Moms

We partner with the community to:

  • Help women have healthy babies
  • Fund local Healthy Start Services
  • Ensure high quality services for moms and babies are affordable and accessible
  • Improve the well being of pregnant women and their babies

Healthy Start provides moms, newborns and families with the resources, help and support they need to have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. The goal of Healthy Start is to reduce infant mortality, reduce the number of low birth weight babies and improve health and developmental outcomes of all Florida’s babies.

25th Anniversary Event

On June 4, 1991, then-Governor Lawton Chiles signed into law the landmark Healthy Start program to make sure every baby in the state lived to reach their first birthday. Twenty-five years later, more than 150,000 families each year receive care coordination and support for a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby; and the infant mortality rate has declined dramatically in Florida. Come celebrate all that Healthy Start has accomplished in 25 years.
