Building Blocks for Babies in St. Petersburg

Grant Awarded: $327,511

The USFSP Family Study Center will partner with families and fellow residents of the Lake Maggiore Shores (LMS) neighborhood on a place-based, cross-sector initiative to ensure the mental health and vitality of all infants and young children up to age 5 living in South St. Petersburg. The goal of the initiative is to create a replicable pilot that engages the entire neighborhood in creating the conditions for babies and young children to stay on track in their social and emotional development and learning potential.
