Did you know that sleep-related deaths are the leading cause of accidental infant mortality?
“Hawaii Cribs for Kids” is a safe sleep education course for low-income, high-risk pregnant women
Health centers and community partners refer eligible parents to HMHB and each participating family receives a free GRACO Pack n’ Play travel crib so their child has a safe place to sleep.
This program is entirely referral-based for qualified women by their social worker or case manager and self-referrals are not accepted.

Incoming Participant Data
Over 45% of Cribs for Kids participants are Native Hawaiian, or part-Native Hawaiian, and two-thirds of participants have a high school diploma or less.
Incoming participants complete a referral form with their intentions for their infant’s sleep, prior to the start of the class (below). As a result of the comprehensive information based on the American Academy of Pediatrics safe sleep guidelines, participants increase their knowledge of safe sleep by an average of 27% during the class. Following the class, HMHB contacts the family throughout the baby’s first year to check on the health status and support other health needs.
