Dear Friends of A Safe Haven for Newborns, 

The Gloria M. Silverio Foundation, 501(c)(3) A Safe Haven for Newborns, has been tirelessly working towards saving newborns from the ultimate abuse, abandonment. One of our key achievements in this endeavor is our longstanding 22-year partnership with hospitals and Fire/EMS. Recognizing their pivotal role in safeguarding the lives of vulnerable infants, they are designated as Safe Haven for Newborns facilities, ensuring our signage is prominently displayed outside each facility. The urgency of our cause cannot be overstated, as countless women across the globe, burdened by unexpected pregnancies and lacking support or resources, resort to abandoning their newborns, often leading to tragic outcomes. Through our comprehensive approach of education campaigns, direct assistance, and the constant availability of our 24/7 multilingual, confidential helpline, we have successfully secured a future and lots of love with their forever family for 391 newborns (381 in Florida, 9 in other states, and 1 in the country of Honduras), while also facilitating direct adoptions for 72 mothers and aiding 6 parents in regaining their parental rights. Our unwavering commitment has touched the lives of over 6,000 women, ensuring the well-being of both newborns and families in their time of need and crisis.

We celebrate the lives of these innocent and precious newborns at our annual gala each year. Our 12th Gala Anniversary celebration this year will be at the InterContinental Miami on Saturday, October 19, 2024. Once again, this year, we have the honor of having Lauren Pastrana of CBS4 News as our Mistress of Ceremony. The highlight of the evening will be seeing the real-life impact of Safe Haven through very moving testimonies by children who were left in safety with Safe Haven by their mothers who wanted them to have a future they could not provide. 

We deeply thank all our gala sponsors and guests who attended last year for their generosity and continued support. What is more important than saving the life of a precious, innocent newborn? It is my sincere hope that we can count on your support this year for this life saving mission, either through sponsorships, tickets, auction items, with a donation of any amount, or with social media posts. If you require further information to get involved, please contact A Safe Haven for Newborns at 305.882.1304 Ext. 103 or safehaven@asafehavenfornewborns.com.

Thank you so much in advance for your consideration. Your support will enable us to continue giving the most innocent and helpless among us, newborns, a chance for a future. 

With sincere appreciation,

Nick E. Silverio


“My birth mother wanted me to have a future that she could not provide. Thank you Uncle Nick! If it wasn’t for A Safe Haven for Newborns, I wouldn’t be here today.”


“Because of A Safe Haven for Newborns I have wonderful parents and a great life. I would like my tummy mom to know that I pray for her. Thank you Uncle Nick for all you do to help babies. I thank God for you in my life.”


“My birth mother had hope and wanted assurances that I be with a family to take care and love me. A Safe Haven for newborns made that possible. Like me, Uncle Nick loves babies. Please support us, yes, I said us as I will always be a part of the Safe Haven family.”
