Imagine a Newborn Baby and No Diapers

During winter shelter, we encounter families in crisis every day. One particular family had a newborn baby. In their hasty exit from their previous living situation (which was unsuitable for habitation), they left without diapers. As new parents, they were overwhelmed with the new responsibilities and their current living situation, and in crisis, necessities like diapers are often overlooked. The outreach team was able to grab diapers on their way out the door to transport the family to a hotel. Having diapers on hand alleviated one of the many stresses that the family had to deal with that night.
