Our mission is to prevent the illegal abandonment of newborns by raising awareness of the safe, legal options available under the Abandoned Newborn Infant Protection Act.
The Abandoned Newborn Infant Protection Act offers a protected, legal alternative to unsafe infant abandonment. An unharmed newborn, up to 30 days old, may be handed to staff at a hospital, emergency medical care facility, police station, firehouse, college/University police station, or Illinois State Police district headquarters. No questions need to be answered and there is no fear of prosecution.
To date, 4,343 infants have been safely surrendered to Safe Havens nationally.
Over 1575 were abandoned illegally resulting in almost 900 deaths.
Please help us continue our passion, commitment, and dedication to spreading awareness of Safe Haven laws.
