Your Path to a Healthy Pregnancy
At Capital Area Healthy Start our goal is to improve the health of infants and their families. Our mission is to reduce infant mortality, improve maternal health and empower women and families in our local community.
For this reason, we created a list of all-inclusive community resources, with our goal and our mission in mind. To learn more information about community resources & Capital Area Healthy Start services, please call (850) 488-0288 ext.109 or go to our Connect page and fill out the referral form.
We know raising a child can be rewarding emotionally but very costly financially, so we made sure most of the resources were FREE – Just like our services! Our other community resources are either low-cost or on a sliding fee scale.
NEWS & EVENTS
Capital Area Healthy Start Coalition provides important news and events featuring guest speakers and a variety of topics. We offer in-person and virtual sessions perfect for new or expecting moms, family members or caregivers.
Grieving the loss of your baby is one the most difficult experiences you may face as a parent. While nothing can remove the pain you feel in your heart during this time, sharing your thoughts and feelings with others who have had a similar experience can help you process the death of your baby. Connecting with others who have experienced infant death can be comforting and therapeutic. Capital Area Healthy Start Coalition can provide you with the care and support you need during this important time in your life.
We support grieving families who are dealing with infant death or a stillborn child through several programs and events year round. Our annual “Walk to Remember,” an evening of comfort, wisdom and hope for families who have suffered the heartbreaking loss of an infant, is attended by approximately 200 people each year. In addition to our annual events, we gather the stories of those who have recently experienced the loss of a fetus or infant to better understand how these tragedies occur and how we can prevent them from happening to others.
