Safe Sleep Program

WHAT IS THE SAFE SLEEP PROGRAM?

The Safe Sleep program aims to prevent infant sleep-related deaths by educating parents and caregivers on the importance of practicing safe sleep for their babies and by providing portable cribs to families who, otherwise, cannot afford a safe place for their babies to sleep.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?

The parent/caregiver must be on public assistance and have no safe sleeping arrangement for their baby. Pregnant mothers must be in their third trimester of pregnancy. The parent/legal guardian of an existing child must have a baby that is less than 6 months old, weighs less than 30 pounds and is less than 35 inches in length.
