California Protects Children With Toll Free Hotline

In California, another inventive way to use toll free to help the populace. The director of California’s Department of Social Services, has launched a toll free hotline to provide access to all Safe Surrender Baby site locations in California. Residents can now call 1-877-222-9723 to obtain hospital and designated fire station safe surrender site locations within their local communities. Since the Safe Surrender Baby law began in 2001, 331 newborns have been safely surrendered in California.

The parent or surrendering person is not required to provide his or her name and is protected from prosecution for child abandonment if the baby has not suffered abuse.
