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.

All children experiencing homelessness, regardless of who they are, where they live or socioeconomic class, have their immediate needs met, free of charge.

We distribute one of two ways:

Crisis-line

Speed is critical to our mission. Our volunteer network operates a 24/7 phone line to assess needs and then delivers diapers + basics within 72 hours.

Partner agencies

Monthly, we supply a network of 23 agencies in two counties with one month’s worth of diapers, wipes and formula per each child.

Our Values

Cutting Through Accessibility Barriers
Families share they are tired from navigating a bureaucratic maze of agencies, waitlists and invasive interview processes to equitably access diapers and basics for their children. We are changing that.
WE ARE NOT A BAND-AID
Providing an adequate supply of diapers proves an impactful way of reducing parenting stress, a critical factor influencing a child's health, development and chances of attaining long term needs.
WE AREN’T YOUR TYPICAL NONPROFIT
We brainstorm and implement out of the box ideas because we know that there is no easy fix, no one-size-fits-all solution.

Our Success

Having the basics can change everything.

Now celebrating our fourth 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 Snohomish and Pierce 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.
