Safe Haven Baby Boxes
The new mom didn’t know what to do. She was alone with her newborn baby and knew she was unable to care for her child.
Fortunately, the mom saw a Baby Box billboard, sponsored by Right to Life of North Central Indiana, with a hotline number on it. She called the number and the person on the other end of the call talked her through the process of surrendering her child. Since, at the time, there was no baby box in her region, the surrender took place in a business parking lot near her home. A family from Southern Indiana adopted the girl and named her Nola.
Right to Life of North Central Indiana has been promoting the Safe Haven hotline number since late 2018. Since then RTL of NCI has fundraised and spent over $60,000 on Baby Boxes and close to $100,000 on advertising the hotline number. Many calls have been made to the hotline number from the North Central Indiana region and four North Central Indiana babies have been surrendered due to moms calling the hotline number (including the latest surrender in Syracuse in March 2023).
This is just one example of how RTL of NCI is making a difference for life in North Central Indiana.
