What Is Safe Haven Baby Box?
The Safe Haven Baby Box provides a place for a Mom in Crisis to safely, securely, and anonymously surrender her newborn. Once baby is placed inside the box the exterior door locks, a silent alarm rings into 911 and emergency personnel are dispatched. They then take the baby to the hospital to be evaluated and DCS is called for placement.
Since April of 2016 there have been 76 legal surrenders in Indiana, including 7 placed in Safe Haven Baby Boxes.
Where Can I Find A Safe Haven Baby Box?
