Every Baby Deserves a Healthy Start!

Healthy Start Coalition Office Closure

The health and safety of pregnant women, infants, and families in our community is our number one priority. Because of that, and the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control regarding COVID-19 for individuals to avoid crowds, we have decided to close our office and have staff work remotely from home.

If you have an urgent need, please contact Executive Director, Shon Ewens at: shon.ewens@healthystartsarasota.org or by calling (205) 506-9914.
