$1 = Diapers a Baby for a Day

The families that Help a Mother Out serves were already struggling before the COVID-19 crisis, and the pandemic continues to overwhelm them. HAMO saw diaper need increase by over 300%, and they distributed over 12 million diapers in fiscal 2021. As one partner agency shared at the start of the pandemic, “People don’t have diapers or money for medicine. People don’t have food. This is not hyperbole.”

Deep into 2021, the devastating economic effects of the last 18 months show no signs of letting up for low-income families. Now, more than ever, your donations are needed in order to continue the distribution of urgently needed diapers to our neighbors across the Bay Area. For every $1 donated, Help a Mother Out is able to provide enough diapers for one baby for one full day. What’s more, 97% of caregivers report they feel less stressed and their baby is healthier as a result of receiving diapers from HAMO. Consider donating today ( to ensure more babies have what they need to THRIVE.


Help a Mother Out® works to improve baby and family well being by increasing access to diapers for families in need.

A family’s access to a reliable supply of clean diapers reduces the risk of infectious disease outbreaks, improves baby’s health and comfort, and enables baby’s participation in early care and education programs. Our vision is a day when every baby has a healthy supply of diapers.

We see too many families having to keep their babies in dirty diapers, and it breaks our hearts. The addition of Help a Mother Out to our program offerings means that our families no longer have to make the impossible choice of diapers versus other basic needs, and we are so thankful. More clean diapers means less diaper rashes and healthier babies.
