Safe Sleep Program

The Safe Sleep Program is an educational program for parents and families with infants under one year of age that strives to reduce the infant mortality rate in Indiana. 

It promotes the ABC’s of safe sleep practices such as placing the baby Alone, on their Backs, and in their own Crib.  The program provides parents and caregivers with Pack-n-Plays and Infant Survival Kits to those who do not have a safe place for their baby to sleep. 

Eligibility requirements include mothers within 4 weeks of expected delivery date, or for infants less than one year of age, parents/caregivers who do not have a safe place for the infant to sleep, and the parent/caregiver must attend a safe sleep education session.  There are no financial prerequisites for this program.
