Welcome to the Long Live Dreams Wall!

The home of Delaware’s Safe Sleep Champions.

Every baby deserves the same opportunity to thrive. The Safe Sleep Campaign provides safe sleep education and works to reduce the social and economic barriers that some families face to creating safe sleep environments. We all have a part to play in making safe sleep possible for all. You can begin by taking the safe sleep pledge right now and you can write your dreams for Delaware’s babies on the Long Live Dreams wall. You can also share this page with friends and colleagues.
