A Healthy Start Can Last a Lifetime

The Healthy Start Coalition of Hardee, Highlands, and Polk Counties’ MISSION is to promote and support
healthy pregnancies, babies, and families by providing a maternal and child health system
of care through community partnerships.

Our VISION is to be the leader for linking community resources in order to maximize the health
and wellness of childbearing women and their families.

Our COMMITMENT is two-fold:

  1. To establish partnerships among private and public sector, state and local governments, community groups and organizations, and maternal and child health care providers to offer coordinated, community-based care for pregnant women and infants.
  1. To promote and protect the health and well-being of all pregnant women and children through the provision and accessibility of health care programs to fully meet the health requirements of this population.

The Healthy Start Coalition is here for you.
