Safe Haven

Louisiana’s Safe Haven Law allows a parent who wishes to anonymously give up an infant (unharmed and less than 60 days old) to leave the infant in the care of an employee of a designated emergency care facility.

Facilities include any licensed Hospital, Public Health Unit, Emergency Medical Service Provider, Medical Clinic, Fire Station, Police Station, Pregnancy Crisis Center or Child Advocacy Center.

Safe Haven calls are answered by our KIDLINE counselors.

For more information on Safe Haven, please call our KIDLINE (1-800-CHILDREN) or visit the Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services.
