Safe Haven Baby Box and Hotline Number Billboard Update
Update as of July 7, 2020
The Logansport, Indiana, Safe Haven Baby Box has been successfully tested. The Blessing of the Box is now scheduled for Friday, July 17th at 10:30 am. The Blessing event will take place at the Baby Box which has been installed at the main fire department, 630 High Street, Logansport, Indiana. The public is invited.
The Marion, IN Safe Haven Baby Box contract was signed. RTL of NCI sent the check to Safe Haven Baby Boxes for $10,000 for the building of the box.
The current Safe Haven Baby Box Hotline Number billboards are up in Marshall, Cass and Kosciusko County. We want to thank K21 Foundation in Kosciusko County for providing a $9,000 grant to help cover the cost of these billboards in Kosciusko County.
Background on RTL of NCI Safe Haven Baby Box Project.
A goal was announced at the 2018 fall Legacy of Life Banquet to raise funds for two Safe Haven Baby Boxes in north central Indiana as well as raising awareness for the Safe Haven hotline number.
We have appreciated the opportunity to partner with many individuals and organizations such as Kristi Ormsby, Warsaw Ministerial Association, Whitley County Republican Women’s Club, Knights of Columbus in Warsaw and Columbia City, and Parkview Health.
The goal of two baby boxes in north central Indiana has now transformed into 4 (Warsaw, Syracuse, Logansport and Columbia City) and now we are working towards a fifth box (Marion, IN).

In addition to the goal of seeing baby boxes installed in north central Indiana, RTL of NCI has implemented a marketing plan to promote the Safe Haven Baby Box hotline number in north central Indiana. The first step was a 3-month billboard campaign in Whitley and Kosciusko Counties beginning in November of 2018.
Beginning June 2019, billboards were put up in six of the north central Indiana counties (Whitley, Kosciusko, Grant, Wabash, Fulton, and Cass). Check out the billboard design.
If you would like to support these efforts, you can give a tax-deductible donation. Checks can be made payable to RTL of NCI (note which baby box campaign you want to donate to on memo line) and mailed to PO Box 1162, Warsaw, IN 46581. You can also give online.
