Floridians Fighting Falls

​​​​​​Evidence-Based Fall Prevention Programs Save Lives

Floridians Fighting Falls is a not-for-profit community-based program.  We rely on the donations from local businesses, friends, family and support from the community to help us achieve our goal of keeping our senior adults active and prevent fall related injuries. 

Mission and Vision

Floridians Fighting Falls was established in October 2011 with the sole purpose of helping seniors reduce their risk of falling so they may continue to live independently with dignity.  Dedicated to decreasing the loss of human life and reducing the economic impact resulting from a fall or fall related injury, the goal of Floridians Fighting Falls is to educate our partners in the community on the impact of a single fall.
