ABOUT THE NATIONAL SAFE HAVEN ALLIANCE
The National Safe Haven Alliance (NSHA) supports states’ efforts to prevent infanticide and newborn abandonment through safe-haven relinquishments. NSHA is dedicated to reaching these women and encouraging them to make the right choice for themselves and their babies, whether it is a safe-haven relinquishment, adoption, or parenting.
The National Safe Haven Alliance works to publicize safe havens laws so at-risk women know that this compassionate alternative exists for them and their newborns.
NATIONAL SAFE HAVEN ALLIANCE PROJECTS
To achieve its mission of promoting infant abandonment laws and to support states’ efforts to prevent infanticide, the National Safe Haven Alliance has created the following: celebrity-endorsed public-service announcements; a crisis counseling hotline; customizable brochures, posters, and educational materials; a speakers’ bureau; expert training on building safe-haven programs; an up-to-date compilation of safe-haven statistics, state laws, and safe-haven organizations and programs; media outreach; websites for state organizations.
Mothers in Need
NSHA has also spent the last year developing a small fund to assist mothers in need who may utilize the Safe Haven program.
