Helping Mamas was founded by two moms who are also social workers and nonprofit professionals. With a combined 30 years of experience, we put our heads together to find a solution. As social workers, we were serving women who desperately needed diapers but couldn’t afford them, used plastic grocery bags when they ran out of diapers, and put their beloved children in the wrong sized car seat because that is all they had. We also saw that all of the services and resources we were trying to deliver to these clients were wasted until their most basic needs were met. It is impossible to give job training or financial literacy skills to a mother who is reusing dirty diapers on her baby. The worry, stress, and anxiety about her child overshadow everything else.
Our goal is to serve over 50,000 in 2020 and distribute over 1 million diapers and essential baby items. We partner with over 120 organizations to make sure that children are happy and thriving.
