Who We Are
Nonprofit, cutting through accessibility barriers, and providing diapers and basics, free of charge, to partner agencies and families facing homelessness in urban, rural and underserved communities.
Our goal is to shed light on the most vulnerable: babies and children.
Babies of Homelessness is a 501(3)c nonprofit, cutting through accessibility barriers, and providing diapers and basics (wipes and formula), free of charge, to partner agencies and families facing homelessness in urban, rural and underserved communities.
We are committed to serving all children experiencing homelessness—regardless of who they are, where they live, or socioeconomic class—having their immediate needs met.
We distribute one of three ways:
Speed is critical to our mission. Our volunteer network operates an intake hone line to assess needs and then delivers diapers + basics within a few days.
Monthly, we supply a network of 20 agencies in two counties with one month’s worth of diapers, wipes and formula per child.
Three times during the month, families in need of diapers can choose to meet at a designated pickup location in Bellevue, Everett and Renton and receive a box of diapers.
Having the basics can change everything.
Now celebrating our fifth year as an organization, Babies of Homelessness has grown from a vision by the exceptional Star Lalario and is more dedicated than ever to our mission. Volunteers are a huge part of our success story and we plan to recruit more throughout the next year.
In 2021 and beyond, we aim to expand our service area to more cities in South King and Snohomish counties, where the need is great.
Public and private funding tends to focus on building and expanding programs, as opposed to investing in organizations’ core infrastructure. As a result, many nonprofits are starved for the kind of support that can truly strengthen our operations and enable us to deliver our services more effectively.
As we receive more funding to invest in paid staffing, technology, and infrastructure, we will be able to reach more families and expand basic needs services in new areas.
