A SAFE HAVEN FOR NEWBORNS

Gloria M. Silverio Foundation, 501©3, Not-for-profit “A Safe Haven for Newborns” Miami, Florida 33166

“A Safe Haven for Newborns” is dedicated to reaching young women across Florida, who are hiding their pregnancy, who might otherwise abandon their unwanted newborn. While an unthinkable act, it is an act of panicked desperation by mothers who believe themselves to be abandoned, without support or resources. We are the safety net, possibly the last resort for a girl or mother at her moment of crisis, very often facing life and death issues. Hundreds of precious newborns now have a future to be all they can be with thousands of women assisted in their time of crisis. Visit our web site at www.asafehavenfornewborns.com.
