Baby Safe Haven Program—a project of the National Safe Haven Alliance

In 1999 an overwhelming number of infant abandonments took place. Never before in a single year had so many mothers decided that they couldn't care for their children—and then disposed of their newborn infants in an unsafe and tragic way.

In response, a group of dedicated people worked together to create a law that would guarantee no mother ever had to secretly dispose of her newborn infant. This law would protect the mother and assure her that she would not be prosecuted for relinquishing her baby. So long as the baby was safe and given to a responsible adult at a designated location, the mother would be free to go anonymously.

Since its inception, over 2,000 babies are known to have been positively impacted by the Baby Safe Haven program.

With Safe Haven, no one ever has to abandon a child again.
