DESE Safe Cribs for Missouri Program
The Safe Cribs for Missouri program provides portable cribs and safe sleep education to low-income families who have no other resources for obtaining a crib. The program is administered by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) through federal funding from the Maternal Child Health Services Block Grant (Title V) and state funding from the Children’s Trust Fund. The overall goal of the program is to support families and reduce the risk of sleep-related infant deaths.
Offered by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS), TEL-LINK provides Missourians with confidential information and referrals on maternal and child health services. The operators at TEL-LINK will provide information and referrals concerning a wide range of health services in your community.
