Our Mission & Vision

Building healthy communities by ending diaper need and period poverty through access, education, and advocacy.

We treat others the way we would want to be treated.

We believe in being honest and having strong morals.

We work to spread the word about our mission both those those we serve and those who fund us.

We remind ourselves continually why we exist – to end diaper need and period poverty.

We are passionate about what we do, continually improve our processes, always striving to do our best.

We are compassionate to everyone’s needs; we value diversity.
