A Safe Haven for Newborns, a statewide campaign which allows parents to anonymously leave their unwanted newborns at fire stations and hospitals, announced this week it’s celebrating the “150th child saved” since 2000.

“When we began our mission to save the innocent lives of newborns from abandonment, we said and truly believed: If we saved only one life, all of our effects would be worthwhile,” said Nick Silverio program founder. So far this year, 10 newborns have been left in safe havens, he said.
