Safe at Home Program

The Safe at Home address confidentiality program can help survivors of many different crimes stay safe by providing a designated address for survivors to use when creating new public records, helping to maintain the privacy of their addresses and ensure an extra level of safety.


The Christian County Health Department is proud to aid potential applicants in joining the program. To learn more about Safe at Home, either visit the program's website or contact the Health Department at 417-581-7285

Safe Cribs Program

The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) Safe Cribs for Missouri Program provides cribs and safe sleep education to low-income families who have no other resources for obtaining a crib. The goal of the program is to support families and reduce the risk of sleep-related infant deaths.
