Despite the past year's challenges, we've made significant progress toward our vision of ensuring every baby is born healthy, every mother is supported, and every father is involved. We invite you to review our Annual Appeal, an investment in the potential of every family we serve. Your contribution directly impacts our mission, providing hope, dignity, and a brighter future for countless families in Martin County.

In other news, mark your calendars for our Father-Daughter Dance on February 3rd—a night of laughter, dancing, and unforgettable memories for fathers and daughters of the Treasure Coast.

We also celebrate the success of our Safe Baby Training event, where community partners gained valuable knowledge to prevent infant injuries and mortalities.

Lastly, as the holidays approach, our heartfelt wishes go out to your family. Please note that our office and Diaper Bank will be closed from December 25th to January 1st.

A Year of Growth

As the year draws to a close, we reflect on the journey we've taken together—your constant support has been the heartbeat of our mission. Today, we are reaching out to you with our Annual Appeal, a call to action that embodies the spirit of giving and the power of collective compassion.

Now, as we approach the end of this chapter, we invite you to join us in our Annual Appeal to ensure that our impact continues to reach every baby in Martin County. Your support is not just a donation; it is an investment in the potential of every baby, mother, and father we serve.

Safe Babies of Martin County

On November 3rd, 20 community members and partners from Martin County Healthy Start, Helping People Succeed, Nurse-Family Partnership, Okeechobee Healthy Start, and the Department Of Health - Martin County came together to learn from and collaborate in the Safe Baby Training. This event was curated by the Healthy Start Coalition of Hillsborough County and instructed by our Community Engagement Manager, Jill Taylor.
