Child Passenger Safety Program

The Indiana Criminal Justice Institute awarded Hoosier Uplands a car seat safety grant in 2017, to serve the families and/or youth caregivers of Lawrence, Orange, Martin, and Washington counties.  This allows Hoosier Uplands to educate families and caregivers, to provide replacement car seats when needed at free of cost, and teach families and caregivers the proper procedures for installing child safety seats.  Each site conducts car seat inspections by appointment during their determined walk-in hours.  If you or someone you know is in need of a replacement seat or wants to have their seat checked to ensure it is properly installed, please contact a Hoosier Uplands car seat technician!
