Keeping Families Covered is a 501c3 organization that 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. Our mission is to eliminate the barriers that exist to access basic human needs for the most vulnerable residents in the community. We also raise awareness about diaper need and period poverty while working to build sustainable distribution programs in northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin.
As a member of the National Diaper Bank Network, we distribute disposable diapers (babies, toddlers, youth, adults, seniors) through two diaper banks and a mobile diaper pantry. As a member of the Alliance for Period Supplies, we distribute period products (pads, liners, tampons) to women and girls.
With offices in Lake County and McHenry County, Keeping Families Covered supports our neighbors with the basics they need to thrive and reach their full potential.
