Safe Haven Signage Request Form
The Washington Safe Haven Law Revised Code of Washington 13.34.360 says that newborn drop-off locations (fire stations, rural health clinics, and all hospitals across the state) shall post a sign indicating that the location is appropriate for the safe and legal transfer of a newborn.
The phone number for Safe Haven support changed. The correct Safe Haven Hotline number is: 1-888-510-2229. All designated drop-off locations in the state are requested to update or replace any signs posted at their facility or website with the correct information. Mounting a Safe Haven sign with accurate information, including the phone number, could save the life of a vulnerable newborn. You can order signs through the National Safe Haven Alliance.
If replacing the sign is a financial hardship for an organization, DOH has limited funding to purchase signs. DOH will purchase and ship the signs to drop-off locations with a financial need. We can only ship signs to physical addresses. Interested locations need to complete this form by close of business April 01, 2024. If you have any questions, please contact WASafeHaven@doh.wa.gov.
Information collected via this form may be subject to release in accordance with RCW 42.56 (Public Records Act).
