OCFS Publications Now Available in Seven Languages

Two important brochures provided by OCFS are now available in seven languages.

The first brochure, “Are You Pregnant? Scared? Alone?,” provides information on safe havens for infants.  Each year, babies die because they are abandoned by people who couldn’t take care of them. Often, these are young mothers who give birth in secret - afraid and overwhelmed.  Safe havens are anonymous and available to protect infants. The links to the different languages are:
