THE HOPE BOX is working with legislators, public safety professionals, medical personnel, crisis pregnancy centers, and adoption professionals to address the issue of infant abandonment. 
Our approach is four-pronged. We are working daily to:
1. Update legislation by working with legislators to amend the Safe Haven Law.  To learn more about how we helped to change the Safe Haven law in Georgia to save even more at-risk infants, visit our Safe Haven page. 
2. Provide education on infant abandonment to Safe Haven Drop Facilities, as well the general public.  At Safe Haven facilities, our education focuses on best practices for receiving and processing Safe Haven newborns and general care instructions for both mothers in crisis and their infants. For training
We educate the general public on the issues of infant abandonment including the reasons for abandonment, the types of infant abandonment, the laws surrounding infant abandonment, and the ways the public can help create better outcomes for abandoned infants.
If you would like to book a representative from THE HOPE BOX to educate your group on the issues and solutions surrounding infant abandonment, please call us at 770-765-6301 or email us at
3. Develop procedures to rescue and receive abandoned infants. These best practice procedures will be provided to Safe Haven facilities including police stations, fire stations, hospitals and health departments. 
4. Bridge the gap between child welfare organizations and forever families. THE HOPE BOX will be notified of Safe Haven infants in the state of Georgia and will track these infants until they are connected with a forever family. We also work to protect infants who are at risk of being trafficked for sex, by bringing information about trafficking plans before Georgia courts to secure protective orders.
