Providing Basic Needs

Parents have enough stress as it is, not being able to give their child clean diapers doesn’t have to be one of them. We partner with agencies around town to help meet the diaper need.

Diapers are expensive, we know. We’re here to help!

  • Disposable diapers can cost around $70-$80 a month per child.
  • Did you know you can’t buy diapers with SNAP or WIC?
  • Childcare centers usually require parents to provide a day’s supply of disposable diapers, otherwise the child has to stay with the parent.
  • In Wyoming, 33% of children live in families earning 100%-200% of the Federal Poverty Level (25,750 a year for a household of 4).
  • Many people feel being able to provide a clean diaper for their child is essential to being a good parent
