HomeAid Essentials Program Distributes Nearly 2.5 Million Baby Items for Homeless Families


5 HomeAid chapters recently hosted Essentials drives in their communities to collect diapers, wipes, formula and other baby items to help cost-burdened families who are struggling to make ends meet. HomeAid Atlanta, Colorado, Orange County, Inland Empire and Northern California collectively distributed over 2 million baby items, saving families faced with economic hardship over $600,000.00!

HomeAid Essentials, a community outreach program of HomeAid was established to alleviate diaper need and to help off-set the cost of every day living expenses. "Diaper need" is defined as the lack of a sufficient supply of diapers to keep a baby clean, dry, happy and healthy. Government assistance programs and food stamps do not cover the cost of diapers and wipes. With families spending upwards of $80 a month on diapers for each child, HomeAid will help thousands of families across the country by leaving them with more money in their pockets to pay for other necessities such as food, transportation and housing.
