by Jake's Diapers, Inc.

Summary

Jake's Diapers serves babies around the world living in devastatingly difficult situations, where sometimes a choice has to be made between food and diapers. Sadly, this includes Veterans here in our own community. These veterans tend to be suffering from PTSD and other traumatic illnesses and are struggling to provide basic needs for their families.

Challenge

There are more than 40 Veterans with young, infant children in the Fox Valley whose lives are impacted by suicide. These Veterans receive support and help from the Center for Suicide Awareness, and tend to be suffering from PTSD and other challenging mental illnesses. They find themselves in a dire situation of being unable to meet the basic needs of their children, including an adequate supply of diapers to keep their babies and toddlers clean, dry and healthy.

Solution

Through an innovative collaboration between Jake's Diapers and the Center for Suicide Awareness this project will supply cloth diaper kits to Veterans experiencing diaper need in the Fox Valley area of Wisconsin. These kits solve diaper need by providing a complete supply of cloth diapers to meet the diapering needs of these children from birth to potty training.

Long-Term Impact

As our Veterans continue to have their diaper need solved, they are able to focus on improving their health and economic situation, as well as plan for a better future for themselves and their children. These are all steps to an increased quality of life, as well as long term survival for both parent and child.
