Why We Support Young Families

• It costs a family about $1,000 a year to buy a supply of average-priced diapers for one child. For someone who works a full-time minimum-wage job, making just over $15,000 a year, that’s a huge expense.

• About 30% of mothers report not being able to afford diapers for their children, and one in 12 admit to stretching their diaper supply, leaving their child in a wet diaper or partially cleaning the diaper and reusing it.

• Nearly 60 percent of families in diaper-need report having missed work or school because they didn't have enough diapers for childcare.

• Diapers are not considered essential and therefore are not covered by federal assistance programs. Diapers are not covered by social welfare systems like WIC or food stamps because they are considered “hygiene items.”

• In May 2020, Mile High United Way collected 423 baby items, which were distributed to our Bridging the Gap youth participants as well as the following partner organizations: Florence Crittenton, Family Tree, The Gathering Place, and Mountain Resource Center. Thank you to everyone who donated!
