A Safe Haven for NewbornsSafe Haven

You have a safe choice. Instead of abandoning or putting your baby in danger, hand your baby to someone at a Safe Haven. In Kansas, a person stating they are a parent may leave their baby that is 45 days old or younger in the hands of staff at a fire station, city or county health department, or medical care facility (K.S.A. 38-2282). In Leawood, the fire stations are a Safe Haven for Newborns. For more information on the program, dial 2-1-1 or (866) 320-5764.
