Baby Basics NYC is a non-profit 501(c)(3) 100% volunteer
organization dedicated to helping low-income working families and their children on the UWS of Manhattan, NYC.
Our mission is to promote healthy early childhood care and positive parenting by consistently providing community
connection, education and diapers to working poor families. Diapers,
a basic fundamental necessity, are expensive for financially stressed families who are struggling to make ends meet
in NYC, and their children can be at risk.
Families who qualify for our program must consistently
attend meetings to connect with other families and with volunteers who offer help and guidance in baby care, parenting
and wellness. This connection, or mentoring, is just as important as diapers to our families, the moms especially
who tend to isolate when caring for their young children.
Baby Basics Inc., a national mission, knows that early intervention with infants is one of the
best ways to prevent later failure to thrive. Poor hygiene can lead to stunted development, diaper rash, discomfort, crying
and very unfortunately, child abuse. At risk children and their parents need help and community.
100% of revenue generated by donations is applied to purchasing
diapers. Administrative costs are underwritten by donations earmarked as such.
