Healthy Start Coalition of Pasco, Inc.

For moms and newborns, there is help in Pasco County. "Healthy Start provides moms and newborns with the resources, support and help they need to have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy birth" (Healthy Start website). They can be contacted at:

In addition to Healthy Start, the organization also has the MomCare program.
MomCare is a Medicaid funded program specifically designed for moms-to-be who would not normally be eligible for Medicaid but qualify because of an expansion of the eligibility criteria during pregnancy. The purpose of the program is to ensure early prenatal care, thereby producing healthy birth outcomes. A list of providers and contact information is available on the Healthy Start website. To see the Healthy Start website, just click on the organization's icon under Medical/Dental/Health Services to the right of the page.
