Providing Free Diapers And Other Necessities To Families In Need
Keeping Families Covered provides diapers and other basic needs to individuals and families at no cost through two distribution channels: a network of community partners and direct service. We also raise awareness about diaper need and period poverty while working to build sustainable programs in northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin. Our mission is to eliminate the barriers that exist to accessing basic human needs for the most vulnerable residents in the community. As a member of the National Diaper Bank Network, we distribute disposable diapers (babies, toddlers, youth, and adults/seniors) through our diaper banks and mobile diaper pantry. We also provide infant formula for children up to 12 months old. As a member of the Alliance for Period Supplies, we distribute period products (pads, liners, and tampons). With offices in Lake County and McHenry County, Keeping Families Covered supports thousands of our neighbors with the basics they need to thrive.
