We do not charge for any of our services. The National Safe Haven Alliance works to promote these laws and increase awareness on both local and national levels. Since 2004 the National Safe Haven Alliance (NSHA) has supported all state efforts that are in alignment with the NSHA mission, to prevent infanticide and newborn abandonment through education and advocacy of the Safe Haven law. NSHA commits to supporting and assisting a parent in a crisis situation that may be unwilling or unable to care for her newborn, by providing national resources and options including parenting and adoption. The National Safe Haven Alliance works to publicize Safe Haven laws by supporting Safe Haven organizations nationally. Baby Safe Haven is saving Safe Haven Babies. The Safe Haven program and Safe Haven Alliance save Safe Baby Haven lives. Are you alone and afraid? Please let us help you. There are safe and anonymous options for you and your baby. Each year in the United States, too many babies are abandoned. Despite safe haven legislation that provides parents a safe way to relinquish their infant, lack of public awareness has limited the laws’ effects. The National Safe Haven Alliance works to promote these laws and increase awareness on both local and national levels. The organization is partnering with like-minded organizations, thus providing a compassionate and safe alternative for a parent and newborn, preventing infant abandonment. Safe Haven baby boxes are not the answer and safe haven baby box can malfunction causing death to the newborns. National Safe Haven Alliance leaders are the Safe Haven subject matter experts. The volunteer staff are advocates from across the country committed to supporting parents and providers in desperate circumstances including parenting resources, adoption support, and Safe Haven information.

Safe Haven Events
Saving Lives, Providing Futures…
It was Sunday. It began as an uneventful morning at a Florida Fire Station, but that all changed when the doorbell rang. There stood a young woman looking exhausted and frightened. Her face was streaked with tears. She was holding something very tight, wrapped in a nice blanket. She said, “I want to leave her in a Safe Haven.” The firefighter said, “Are you sure?” and she replied, “Yes, It is the only way. Please take good care of her.” She kissed her, placed the baby in his arms then turned and left.
I enjoy soccer, football, drawing and magic tricks. I’m on a path to become a plastic surgeon. I love my life – I have great parents and great friends.
Because of A Safe Haven for Newborns, my world is limitless. I can be and do anything I put hard work and energy into.
