Safe Haven Law amended!


The Arkansas Safe Haven law allows a parent to bring a child, 30 days old or younger to an employee at any hospital emergency room, fire station or law enforcement agency anonymously and without facing prosecution for endangering or abandoning a child.

Once a baby is given up, the Arkansas Department of Human Services will be called so that it can find the baby a permanent loving home. 

Where do I leave my newborn?

You can take the baby to any hospital emergency room in Arkansas, fire department or any police or sheriff department or an Arkansas State Police office. The baby must be left with an employee - not at the door.

Safe Haven Baby Boxes are not yet available in Arkansas but will allow for complete anonymity for parents who want to surrender their child.
