Sunny Start Fact Sheets

The Indiana State Department of Health’s Sunny Start: Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds initiative is a comprehensive, collaborative, statewide effort to implement a strategic plan to support a coordinated system of resources and supports for young children from birth through age five and their families.

Sunny Start, in collaboration with Family Voices Indiana, has updated a series of financial fact sheets to aid families in locating and understanding important resources to assist them and their children, including those with special healthcare needs. These fact sheets are an overview of state and federal programs that support the health and well-being of children. They include eligibility guidelines when applicable, and link the family or professional with the appropriate agency.

Families and professionals find these fact sheets to be easily understood and a reliable source of information. The recent update assures that they include any recent changes to these programs. They have also been professionally translated into Spanish.

We invite you to utilize these fact sheets in your home, medical practice, agency, or community. You can find the English fact sheets here and the Spanish version here.
