Our mission is to improve the health and well-being of pregnant women, infants, and young children.
The future of Sarasota County rests in the ability of the next generation to become productive citizens and talented leaders. Babies who are born healthy have the greatest chance to reach these goals.
Our professional-level Care Coordinators, Educators, Counselors, and others work in public-private partnership with local maternal-child health care facilities and social service agencies to provide, guide and monitor our risk-based system of care to those at risk, and provide community education and awareness through programs and social media.
We are the only non-profit organization in Sarasota County with the broad responsibility to assess maternal-infant-child needs every five years and respond with a targeted action plan for prioritizing and meeting the needs of at-risk pregnant women, infants and new parents. A variety of risk factors, many of which cross all income levels, races, and ethnicities, can lead to poor pregnancy health, harm to the developing fetus, or increased vulnerability of newborns and infants to poor health, development, or even infant death. Healthy Start's prenatal and infant risk screening processes help identify those who may need our help.
