Funding for Starting Point

Starting Point is funded by the Nassau County Board of Commissioners, the City of Fernandina Beach, the State of Florida Department of Children and Families/Lutheran Services Florida, and donations from companies and individuals in the community. We accept private insurance, Medicare and Medicaid. A sliding fee scale is available for those without financial resources to pay for care that is supported by the Starting Point Scholarship Fund. The Scholarship Fund is made possible by generous Starting Point employees and community donors.

Our commitment to improving mental health drives us to work closely with other community providers and agencies to coordinate care and offer the best services wherever they are needed. Starting Point partners include Baptist Medical Center Nassau, Department of Health, Barnabas, Micah's Place, Family Support Services, Judicial System, Department of Juvenile Justice, Department of Children and Families, St. Vincent’s Health, Women's Giving Alliance, community coalitions and schools.
