|The Baby Moses
Project was established to address an alarming increase
in newborns being abandoned in perilous places. The mission
of the project is to publicize a confidential, and safe
alternative to newborn abandonment.
We are dedicated to providing a safe shelter for the youngest
and most vulnerable members of our society. With the cooperation
and assistance of compassionate individuals, we feel that
this project will undoubtedly lead to the successful saving
of numerous lives. We are confident that this effort,
partnered with those of other states and organizations,
will result in a national recognition of this
Safe Haven Designation
Why have we chosen the name, The Baby Moses Project?
Because, in addition to being placed in a basket, Moses
was also carefully watched over by an anonymous protector
until he was safely placed in the arms of an in a person
who could provide the love and care necessary for life.
Similarly, those involved with this project and the implementation
of abandonment legislation, want to provide a protector
for newborns, and anonymity for desperate mothers who
choose a responsible alternative to abandonment.
