Basics for Babies

Because a great start to life starts with basic necessities.

Every baby deserves to be clean, healthy, and dry. Opportunity Council helps make that happen by helping to provide diapers and wipes to clients.

About the need for diapers and wipes.

Access to clean diapers is one of the most fundamental requirements for a baby to have the safe and healthy start to life they deserve. Yet 1 in 3 families in the U.S. experience diaper need. The average family with a child in diapers spends $80 a month on diapers alone.

In addition to the health and safety risks diaper need poses to babies, without an adequate supply of diapers, babies are less likely to be accepted into child care programs making it harder for their parents to work.
