2010 Florida Young Mothers


The Florida KIDS COUNT Project, established in 1992, continues to highlight core child well-being indicators utilized by KIDS COUNT. This activity supported by the Annie E. Casey Foundation strives to raise public awareness of children’s issues and promote public accountability for improving outcomes for children and families. Florida KIDS COUNT remains dedicated to providing resources to assist educators, policy makers, government agencies, public and private organizations, child advocates, and concerned citizens.

Further information on state and county level data, data sources, and comparable information from other states and the nation is available upon request. Hopefully, this publication and all efforts of Florida KIDS COUNT will continue to provide a sense of direction for collaborative efforts, assuring a brighter future for all Floridians.
