The Florida Keys Healthy Start Coalition unites people and resources to improve the health and well-being of pregnant women, children, and their families in Monroe County. The Coalition serves over three-fourths of the approximately 750 babies born in Monroe County each year, before, during and after pregnancy. We work with women and families of all economic levels, with or without insurance. We work to address all issues related to pregnancy and infants, so that families in the Keys can give their children a Healthy Start!
For every $1 we spend towards keeping a baby healthy we save society $10. Improving birth outcomes and the lives of young children in Monroe County has a major impact on their cost to society later on. Most importantly, every dollar spent on a Healthy Start client improves the life of one child, one mother, even an entire family. Please help us facilitate healthy babies and strengthen families in Monroe County by making a donation to our current greatest need.
A $25 donation will buy a can of specialty formula for an infant with specific formula needs or bottles for a baby with special needs. $40 will buy a kit so a nursing mother can use one of our hospital grade breast pumps. $55 will purchase a car seat or a portable crib so a baby can travel or sleep safely. $100 will provide counseling for a women with post-partum depression. $500 will provide an ultrasound for a women with a high-risk pregnancy. $1500 will provide prenatal care for a pregnant woman who would otherwise go without.
If you have any questions regarding your online donation, please contact us directly at (305) 293-8424 or email us at email@example.com.
