Why do we love Columbus? One Word = Fellowship.
We win together. We lose together.
We take #SupportLocal to a new level.

 

Well, fellowship of Columbus… 1 in 3 Columbus families needs our help.  Columbus Birth & Parenting is in the business of supporting families, and not just the ones who can afford in-home overnight support!  We donate hundreds of hours each year to put diapers in the hands of local families who do not have an adequate supply and here’s why…


We know:

  • 1 in 3 Columbus families must reuse soiled diapers on their baby because they cannot afford an adequate supply.
  • This impacts ~12,000 children under the age of 2 in our beloved city Every. Single. Day.
  • Infants who must wear soiled diapers are apt to develop diaper rash and infections so severe that medical attention is required.
  • For low income women, not having an adequate supply of diapers is often MORE STRESSFUL than not having an adequate supply of food.
  • Cloth diapers are not a viable alternative due to the fact that most public and private (apartment building) laundromats do not allow cloth diapers to be washed in them.
