Sadly this is the case for more moms than we like to imagine. In 2010, an estimated 22% of California children lived below the FederalPoverty Level (FPL) of $22,113 annually for a family of four with two children.
- 1 in 3 families in the U.S. struggle to buy diapers for their children
- Most free/subsidized childcare programs require parents to provide disposable diapers
- You cannot use Food stamps or WIC for diapers
- For many families in crisis this can mean being forced to choose between buying diapers or other basic needs like shelter, food, and medicine.
Help A Mother Out (HAMO), a non-profit dedicated to providing diapers for homeless and low income families, has launched a national Mother’s Day Call To Action with a goal to raise $30,000 to support the work to get diapers to families in need.
