Every year, the equivalent of 8 kindergarten classes dies in Northeast Florida before their first birthday.

Strengthening Families

The health and well-being of families has a direct impact on infant mortality and birth outcomes. We provide services to help parents provide safe and stable environments for their children; fathers connect with their children; and adolescents focus on reproductive health.

• Co-parenting
• Engaging dads
• Child abuse prevention
• Adolescent reproductive health

When communities experience infant
mortality, it is a reflection of the overall health of a population.
