1 in 3 Families suffers from Diaper Need each month in SF Bay Area

Diaper Need Is Real

  • One in three US moms reports suffering from diaper need. Today 40,000 children in Contra Costa County (CCC) are living in poverty.

  • These families are already in acute need, and disposable diapers can cost $70-$80 per month per child. There are no state or federal safety-net programs that allocate money for diapers.

  • Diaper need impacts the physical, mental, and economic well-being of parents and children. At a minimum of 30 diapers a month shortfall, for 40,000 children in CCC, the need is 100,000 diapers a month locally!

  • By closing the gap, SBFRC has a huge impact on the mental, physical, and economic welfare of these families. When the babies are dry and comfortable, parents aren’t as stressed, maternal depression is decreased, bonding and attachment is promoted.

  • With diapers, families go to work, children stay in school, ER visits for diaper rash related illnesses are reduced. By providing centers with diapers as an incentive for families to attend, the community improves.

  • Moms can form relationships and support each other, babies benefit from developmental programming, and families gain education in prenatal and childbirth classes.

  • As small as a clean diaper is, it has a huge impact on family and community relationships.
