Pregnancy Care has a new program for young families in need. They now offer the “Keep the Bottoms Clean Ministry” that offers a week’s supply of clean diapers and baby wipes to families in financial crisis.
The intent of the program is to help families promote the health of their small children and also prevent the stigma of these children wearing dirty diapers.
“We as Christians ask a mom to bring her baby into the world,” Pregnancy Care said in a press release. “We also have a responsibility to help with their continued care.”
Participants will receive a complimentary week’s supply of diapers for their first visit. If they want to have more, they must enroll in Pregnancy Care’s “Earn While You Learn” program, which offers lessons in childcare. Participants can earn points towards items in the ministry’s Baby Boutique, which is stocked with items for babies and toddlers donated from the community.
Funding for the diaper program is coming from a grant from Lamb of God Lutheran Church in Lake Havasu City and the Pacific Southwest District of the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League.
