On average, a child uses 6 – 12 diapers per day. This can add up to $60 – $80 per month, which places a significant burden on Neighborhood House’s low-income families. Even though diapers are essential items for families with small children, those costs are not covered by WIC or food stamps.
To support our families through this stressful time, our goal is to raise $30,000 to provide a 3-month supply of diapers to 200 of our families who are most in need. In order to keep everyone safe, we found a diaper service that is able to make no-contact deliveries, directly to our families’ homes!

At Neighborhood House, we see first-hand how the lack of living-wage jobs and the rising cost of housing has already caused many of our community members to fall far behind. Centuries of inequitable policies and social structures laid the groundwork for this unacceptable injustice. We see how the coronavirus pandemic and the resulting economic uncertainty is compounding existing injustices and disproportionately impacting communities of color and immigrant communities.
By supporting or raising awareness of our diaper drive, you can help families with this immediate need.
