BABY BASICS OF TROY MINISTRY is a non-profit volunteer organization that provides and distributes diapers and kindness to working low-income families who do not receive governmental cash assistance. 100% of our donations go directly towards the purchase of diapers.
HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS: Upon entering the program the family signs a contract with Baby Basics of Troy Ministry assuring that a family member will attend the twice-monthly diaper distribution. The distribution serve a dual purpose of not only giving the parent a two-week free supply of diapers, but also providing them with an open and caring environment where they can connect with volunteers, talk about other issues that they are facing, or if necessary, receive referrals to other supportive services. The diapers are distributed at a local church in the evening and participants receive text reminders.
WHO QUALIFIES: Families living and/or working in Troy, Clawson or Sterling Heights with babies under the age of three years old, must have at least one parent working, must meet maximum financial guidelines and the family cannot be receiving any form of cash federal or state assistance (welfare). Qualified families are eligible regardless of race, creed or religion.
