Healthy Start Coalition of Brevard Received a Grant from Community Foundation of Brevard

The Healthy Start Coalition of Brevard is grateful to the Community Foundation for Brevard and the Barbara Wells Family Foundation for a $5,300 grant that was used to purchase new Evenflo Sensor Safe Car Seats for Healthy Start Families that were facing financial hardships and were in need of an age-appropriate car seat for their baby.

The car seats provided to the families were equipped with Sensor Safe Technology that alerts the driver when the buckle is undone while the car is in transport, and it alerts the driver that baby is still on board the vehicle when the car is shut off to reduce the risk of leaving the child in the car and dangers of heat stroke.

Community Foundation for Brevard serves as a leader, catalyst and trusted resource for philanthropic individuals and organizations to expand, enhance, and sustain Brevard’s quality of life. For more information on the Foundation, visit their website Community Foundation for Brevard (

Thank you again for this opportunity to provide safer options for our moms and babies in Brevard.
