Keys to Kids' Safety
The Keys to Kids' Safety Program provides community outreach initiatives and child safety resources such as educational materials and training. This program addresses vehicle and bike safety, safe sleep practices, home environment and poison safety.
This program helps parents and caregivers to provide a safe environment to raise their children through the provision of education, support, and safety supplies. We address vehicle and bike safety, safe sleep practices, water and pool safety, home environment and poison safety, and nutrition assistance.
We also conduct children's car seat inspection and installation events and provide new car seats for a small donation, provide education to all community members and, in some cases, cribs, and other necessary safety equipment to parents, caregivers, and agency personnel to ensure the safety of Monroe County children.

Why Keys to Kids' Safety Matters:
Last fiscal year, we trained 7 new volunteer technicians (bringing our total number of technicians to 19) to properly install 155 car seats throughout the Florida Keys and provided families with 124 reduced or no-cost car seats. To meet the needs of families who need to who use public transportation, we provided several stroller car seat combos. Sixty families were able to provide their baby with a safe sleeping environment with baby beds. Over 20 baby and toddler helmets helped keep riders safe.
