“Family Service Association of Howard County offers Sleep Safe Program”
Kokomo, Indiana
October 26, 2011

Family Service Association of Howard County has teamed up with First Candle to make Safe Sleep Kits available to families who need a safe place for their baby to sleep.  First Candle is a national organization that promotes safe sleep for infants. Family Service Association of Howard County is working with the special task force that recently developed in response to the increase in infant deaths due to unsafe sleeping environments.

Each Safe Sleep Kit includes a pack-n-play crib, sheet, wearable blanket for the infant and a pacifier. To qualify for the program, participants must complete a one hour educational session on safe sleep for infants.  The Safe Sleep Kits are free and available to any family in need that does not currently have a safe crib for their baby.  Prenatal families may also apply.


The program encourages practicing the ABCs of Safe Sleep:
Babies Sleep safer….Alone, on their Backs, and in a safe Crib.

First Candle, Indiana University, Riley Hospital for Children, the Prevent Child Abuse Council of Howard County and The Community Foundation of Howard County have all partnered with Family Service Association of Howard County to provide this service.

Family Service Association of Howard County is a United Way organization dedicated to promoting healthy families and empowering vulnerable families through education, prevention, and crisis intervention programs.

For more information please call Family Service Association of Howard County.  Safe Sleep Kits will be available at Family Service Association of Howard County located at 618 S. Main Street on Tuesday and Thursday from 10 am to 2 pm (participants should arrive by 1:30 pm) and on Wednesday from 5 pm to 7 pm (participants should arrive by 6:30 pm).
