2001, Nathan Littauer, Fulton County Social Services, the District
Attorney’s Office and Fulton County Public Health met to
establish Safe Haven.
The Sheriff’s Department 911 vestibule and Nathan
Littauer Hospital Emergency Room was designated as a safe haven
for babies whose parents wish to abandon them.
These are safe locations where the infants could
immediately receive care.
This was done to prevent unnecessary death of an infant
born to an unwilling parent.
