Early Childhood Safety Initiative

The Early Childhood Safety Initiative is now offering FREE safety items and educational phone sessions to income-eligible Morgan County families! Our hope is that busy parents who have not been able to do in-person classes can benefit from this over-the-phone program, made possible by the Ohio Children’s Trust Fund.

Sessions last up to 30 minutes, and include topics such as:

  • Safe sleep
  • How to feed a picky toddler
  • Booster seat safety

Upon completion of at least one session, families can choose up to $400 in free items such as:

  • Cribs
  • Pack-n-plays
  • Childproofing supplies
  • Baby monitors
  • Gun safes
  • And more

Please fill out this form (click the graphic below) to give us an idea of your schedule and unique needs. Then, someone from MCHD will give you a call to schedule your educational phone session. The session will include a topic of your choice and selecting safety items that will help your family. MCHD will then bring your items to you!


If you have further questions, call (740) 962-4572.
