All Safe Haven Baby Boxes are electronically monitored and are equipped to notify 911 as soon as the outer door is open. If there is no one in the building, no worries, 911 dispatch will dispatch the closest fire or police personal.
How does the box work?
1. Parent opens the door to the baby box and a silent alarm is triggered and a call goes to dispatch.
2. Parent places the baby in the bassinet. A sensor is located on the inside of the box that triggers a second call dispatch call.
3. Parent can push a button or simply close the door, which sets off a third alarm and call to dispatch and locks the exterior door.
4. Emergency personnel retrieves the baby from the inside, evaluates, and takes the baby to the hospital.
Currently the only states that have included baby boxes in the safe haven law is Arizona, Arkansas, Indiana, Ohio and Pennsylvania. If you would like to change the law in your state and would like a copy of model legislation click the button below.

It has been determined by the FDA that the Safe Haven Baby Box, like the baby drawers in Arizona, is not a medical device and does not require FDA regulations. The baby box and the baby drawer are not available for sale to the public. FDA Determination Letter below.
Currently, babies surrendered under the safe haven law, including using our baby boxes are relinquished to the department of children services to begin the process of terminating parental rights and placing them with an adoptive family. Depending on your state, if you would like to be considered, contact your Department of Child services, and register as a foster parent with intent to adopt.
Currently five states allow for the use of Baby Boxes. Those states are Arizona, Arkansas, Indiana, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
Currently Fire Stations and Hospitals are approved Safe Haven Baby Box locations.
The expenses associated with the Safe Haven Baby Box program are typically supported by donations from individuals and other organizations in a community. Community leaders and citizens recognize the importance of the Safe Haven Baby Boxes program and usually do not experience problems with securing funds. Installing a baby box provides a tangible element and can serve as a starting point to reinforce the existing law, educating the community, and decreasing the risk of further infanticide.
Absolutely! We encourage it! And we can assist!
