Safe Haven efforts are expanding throughout the country and the support for parents in need is at a critical point. Join us as this year we focus on efforts to "Support, Educate, and Empower" parents and providers. This expert approach to supporting, educating, and empowering parents facing crisis pregnancy situations and those who serve them will prevent infant abandonment. With your help we can provide safe options and holistic support for parents, babies, and Safe Haven providers.  

Don't miss this once-a-year opportunity to learn more about national Safe Haven initiatives, and network with industry leaders.
