Healthy Start Coalition of Southwest Florida is dedicated to improving the health and well-being of pregnant women, children and families in Collier, Lee, Hendry and Glades County.

Established in 1992, Healthy Start Coalition of Southwest Florida, Inc. is a community-based organization that assists pregnant women and babies up to age 3 who are at-risk for poor birth or developmental outcomes.

We work to ensure these women and babies have access to medical care, receive pregnancy/infant/child education, provide evidence-based screenings for early intervention and provide other community resources as needed.

Needs Assessment

Healthy Start of Southwest Florida works to increase healthy births and improve health and developmental outcomes for young children. Last year, more than 15,000 pregnant women and infants benefited from our services through Healthy Start Coalition of Southwest Florida. Every five years, Healthy Start Southwest Florida conducts a thorough needs assessment of the four-county region and uses the findings to educate the community on the status of maternal and child health, prioritize Healthy Start and community resources, advocate for access to care and funding, and develop Healthy Start’s five-year Service Delivery Plan.
