We believe that it takes a community to raise a child, and we’re here to help you find yours.

Healthy Start Coalition of Sarasota County is committed to creating a healthier community, one baby at a time. Providing this Community Resource Directory is one way we can help you.

For Families

Our services for moms include comprehensive pregnancy support, breastfeeding guidance, and specialized programs for addiction during pregnancy. We’re here to help you navigate the journey of motherhood, providing you with the tools, knowledge, and support you need to ensure your baby’s health and well-being.

For Healthcare Providers

We work closely with healthcare providers, offering resources and training to ensure they’re equipped to provide the best care for pregnant women and infants. Our Clean Start program, for example, helps providers address substance abuse issues among pregnant women, ensuring they can provide effective, compassionate care.

For the Community

At Healthy Start, we believe in strengthening our community by educating and raising awareness about maternal and infant health issues. We offer various community programs aimed at improving the overall health and well-being of our community members.
