The Children's Shelter houses up to 20 children. These children are here because they were either removed from abusive situations or have parent(s) imprisoned. The Shelter struggles to afford basic needs, including diapers. This project will provide a supply of cloth diapers, thus saving the shelter precious financial resources. With these funds saved, the Shelter can focus on specialized mental health therapies for these previously abused trauma survivors.
The Children's Shelter struggles to afford basic needs and mental health therapies for the children in their care. By providing a supply of cloth diapers, the shelter can afford specialized mental health therapies. The children here have all been removed from parental care, due to either abuse or imprisonment.
By providing a complete supply of cloth diapers, the shelter will no longer have to purchase disposable diapers.
As our partner organizations in Puerto Rico continue to have their diaper needs solved, they are able to save funds and plan for future improvements in their care. This can mean adding educational programs, offering better healthcare, improved quality of food (more protein!) - all steps that set these babies up for long term survival and productive members of society.
