Hannah Geneser Learning Center & Safety Store

**The store will be closed during the week of Thanksgiving for staff training.** 

New location opened on Oct. 29!

We are excited to announce that through the generous funding of the Hannah Geneser Foundation we will be opening the new and improved Hannah Geneser Learning Center & Safety Store on October 29! The space will offer more opportunities for hands-on learning to help us serve our mission of keeping all kids safe. See our new location and hours. 

We’re helping kids stay out of the hospital. 

The Hannah Geneser Learning Center & Safety Store is committed to making safety a priority for all families. Many are surprised to hear preventable injuries are the leading cause of death and injury for children of all ages (1 to 19 years old). That’s why we provide a variety of safety products and have experts on hand to help you follow best practices as your child grows. When you leave, we want you to feel confident that you have all the information you need to help keep your family safe. We provide one-on-one education for the proper use of each product you purchase. 

We’re making safety affordable for your family. 

The Hannah Geneser Learning Center & Safety Store offers low prices by partnering closely with manufacturers. When you shop with us, you save money and help support the Center for Advocacy and Outreach at Blank Children’s Hospital. The center has experts that reach beyond the hospital walls to improve the health, safety and well-being of all children. 

Hannah’s Story

The Hannah Geneser Learning Center & Safety Store is named after Hannah Geneser. On March 21, 2011, four-year-old Hannah Ray Geneser died in a tragic accident when a screen gave way and she fell from an open window. In response to her tragic and untimely death, the Hannah Geneser Foundation was founded by her parents, Jamie and Shanda. The Hannah Geneser Foundation promotes childhood safety – with special emphasis on window safety – through public awareness and educational opportunities. Learn more about Hannah and the Foundation on their website.
