Engaging Childcare to Impact Infant Mortality

This project is focused specifically on decreasing the amount of infant deaths in Allen County through Safe Sleep practices. We do this by:

  • Providing safe sleep materials to childcare providers who do not have a safe place for babies to sleep while in their care
  • Increasing the number of infant slots available at childcare centers in high risk zip codes
  • Providing materials for childcares to increase 1-2 levels from baseline toward accreditation/Paths to Quality
  • Training childcare providers as Safe Sleep Ambassadors by providing safe sleep training and materials
