We give diaper need a kick in the backside
One in three families do not have enough diapers to keep their child clean, dry and healthy. HappyBottoms wants to change that. Since 2009 we have been covering the amount of diapers a family is short each month, known as the diaper gap, in the Kansas City Metro Area.
happybottoms collaborates with community partners to empower, connect, and impact low income families by alleviating diaper need in the KC community.
Not having a clean diaper can really stink
- Diapers are not covered by government safety net programs like food stamps, Medicaid, and WIC.
- An estimated 26,000 children in Kansas City need diaper assistance (US Census 2017)
- 57% of parents missed work or school because they were unable to provide the required diapers to their child care center.
