Babies of Homelessness

Babies of Homelessness works hard each year to provide diapers, wipes, and formula to thousands of children in King and Snohomish counties, helping to improve the lives of low-income families in our communities. Families with infants and toddlers face various challenges that affect their ability to meet children's basic needs and food, clothing, and housing are among the most significant challenges for families living in poverty. In fact, one in two families lack diapers to keep their children warm and dry, which are in fact the fourth highest living expense among low-income families.

Since 2016, Babies of Homelessness has served parents or guardians with young children facing homelessness, residing in subsidized housing, or living in underserved rural communities. Families call the BoH intake line and order essentials in preferred sizes. BoH is the only agency in our area that allows families to call or text directly to order what they need and receive a significant diaper supply each month. Additionally, BoH has established partnerships with human service agencies such as food banks, shelters, a human trafficking program, refugee assistance, and other services to help families meet more of their needs.

Babies of Homelessness has delivered diapers to more than 15,000 children in 2023 and the need keeps growing! Their goal is to provide more than 1 million diapers in 2024 and are in need of help to get the supplies they need.
