HappyBottoms

Giving families diapers is easy to get behind

HappyBottoms helps Kansas City area families get diapers for their babies. If your child is less than four years old and your family is in financial need, you may qualify for free diapers or training pants every month.

HappyBottoms is available to eligible residents of Cass County (MO), Clay County (MO), Jackson County (MO), Johnson County (KS), Platte County (MO), and Wyandotte County (KS).

    HappyBottoms is offering diaper distribution options for new families at our warehouse:

    Diapers are distributed on the 79th Street side of the building.
