The Florida Association of Healthy Start Coalitions develops and supports local systems of care to optimize the health of moms, babies and families. The Association is made up of 32 individual coalitions from across the state. Each coalition uses data and research to design a service delivery plan unique to their community. Together, we unite to have a collective impact toward better outcomes for Florida’s families. Collectively, we:

  • Mobilize multiple sectors of the public and private sectors on our common mission
  • Leverage of millions of dollars to improve programs and services for families
  • Align efforts with the Florida legislature to keep them informed of the needs of its residents and the importance of our mission
  • Serve as a resource for National maternal and child health initiatives for dissemination to our thousands of partners
  • Conduct assessment of best practices and trends to transfer knowledge among our members and our constituents
