JetStream Federal sponsors A Safe Haven for Newborns event
MIAMI LAKES, FL (November 24, 2014) – JetStream Federal Credit was a table sponsor for the 4th Annual “A Wonderland in Safe Haven” Gala.
A Safe Haven for Newborns, a not for profit organization, was started in 2001 by Nick Silverio.
“Safe Haven” is a safety net for both the mother and the newborn infant. It allows mothers, fathers or whoever is in possession of an unharmed newborn, approximately seven days old or less, to leave them with someone at Safe Havens: any hospital, staffed fire rescue station, or staffed emergency medical service station, with no questions asked, totally anonymous, free from fear of prosecution. The Hospital will contact a participating private adoption agency who will then arrange placement of the newborn with a waiting family.
“JetStream Federal is proud to participate with such a worthwhile organization as A Safe Haven. We are in awe of all of the great work Nick Silverio has done, and hopeful that our efforts in some small way may help to save another life,” said Mara Falero.
