Building Healthy Communities

Ending diaper need and period poverty through access, education, and advocacy.

Our Impact

We believe changing diapers changes lives. We partner with 26 agencies in West Central Illinois to provide diapers and wipes, period supplies, and senior incontinence products to our communities. We distribute over 40,000 diapers and 350+ period kits each month to 11 counties.

Diaper Need

 1 in 3 Illinois families struggled to afford enough diapers to keep their children clean and healthy prior to the pandemic. With rising diaper costs in 2021 and 2022, even more families are having a hard time buying these essential hygiene items. 

Period Poverty

2 in 5 U.S. women struggle to afford period supplies each year. Only 4% of U.S. women are aware of a local resource where they could access free or reduced-cost period supplies. Like diapers, the cost of period supplies has risen in 2021 and 2022, making access to period supplies harder.
