Sleep Safe InitiativeProject led by Holmes County General Health District
About the project.
This Cause Connector project supports infant and child sleep safety training for parents and Health District staff members.
The Holmes County General Health District will promote infant and child sleep safety by providing proper sleep equipment such as cribs, as well as education, training, and support. Resources will be available to families and staff members from the Health District.
Families will be able to request a crib and safe sleep education for their children age 1 and under, while supplies are available. The Health District hopes to purchase 40 cribs to support this program.
Parents will also be able to review infant sleep guides and handouts through the Health District’s website and various social media platforms.
FAO staff comments.
This initiative will allow Health Department staff to train parents and families how to use safe sleep techniques and will provide families with places for their children to sleep safely. Safe sleep practices are some of the most vital elements to keep babies and families safe and healthy, especially in the first years!
