|About||Power in Changing is a nonprofit organization that specializes in providing diapers to families with low income;help keep their babies clean and happy!|
|Mission||Our Mission is to ensure that families living in poverty have an adequate supply of diapers for their infants and toddlers;and to advocate for policy reform so that diapers are included in the definition of and provision for the “basic human needs” of families|
In poor and low-income families, a baby can spend a day or longer in one diaper, leading to potential health and abuse risks.
Low-income parents sometimes cannot take advantage of free or subsidized childcare if they cannot afford to leave disposable diapers at childcare centers. If parents cannot access daycare, then they are less able to attend work or school on a consistent basis. This in turn leads to increased economic instability and a continuation of the cycle of poverty.
Without transportation, buying diapers at an inner city convenience store rather than a large retailer can double or triple the monthly cost for diapers. Many parents are already struggling to pay for rent and food and simply cannot afford the high cost of an adequate supply of diapers for their children. Power in Changing centralizes the fundraising and distribution of free diapers to poor families through existing service providers, including local food pantries, soup kitchens, daycare centers, social service agencies and shelters. Come join us in the fight to end the vicous circle of poverty.
