About Us


Healthy Start is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) serving Collier, Glades, Hendry, and Lee Counties since 1992. Our goals are to:

  • Reduce the number of infant deaths
  • Reduce the number of premature or low birth weight babies
  • Improve health and developmental outcomes for young children

We help ensure moms and babies have access to needed medical care and other community services to help give their baby a Healthy Start in life.

Last year, Healthy Start provided education and support to 14,000 pregnant women, babies, and young children.  95 cents of each dollar received went to services in our local community.
