In 2017 we began to question ourselves about what we were doing to prevent homelessness from occurring.
How are we making sure this doesn’t happen to families in our own backyard?
We felt God leading us to reach families that were one crisis away from homelessness. Single income families in our own South Dallas communities that are making unlivable wages, struggling to provide basic needs for their children.
1 in 3 families experience a diaper need, and no government child safety-net program allocates dollars specifically for this purpose. Bridges’ Community Diaper Pantry provides emergency assistance of diapers, wipes, clothing and health products. We are building relationships with mothers in order to keep families in their homes and hopefully prevent a crisis that could lead to homelessness.
What is a diaper need?
100s of low income families are being impacted through the Community Diaper Pantry. Much more than diapers, mothers are being equipped through parenting education classes, supported through counseling, and prepared during certified childbirth classes.
