Safe Haven Baby Boxes

Safe Haven Baby Boxes (SHBB) provide moms who cannot provide for their newborn a safe, lawful way to surrender their child anonymously. These boxes are built into the structure of participating fire stations and hospitals. Parents who are surrendering an infant open the door to the box, place the child inside, and shut the door, which then locks from the outside. An alarm inside the building notifies emergency personnel, who can open the box from inside to care for the baby.
