The mission of The Natural Momma Me Initiative is to provide a reliable supply of diapers and other resources to families in need to strengthen the community as a whole. Babies require a clean and dependable supply of diapers for a healthy and comfortable quality of life. Our vision is to help create a community in which families have all they need to thrive.
Welcome toThe Natural Momma Me Initiative!
The Natural Momma Me Initiative was founded after Aisha Young read an article about diaper need on CNN.com. After reading about how impoverished mothers were reusing diapers due to limited resources, that diapers were not covered under assistance programs and that potentially 12,000 children in Wayne County alone needed diapers, she knew she had to act to prevent this ‘silent crisis.’ In September 2011, The Natural Momma Me Initiative Cloth Diaper Bank, which later added disposable diapers as an option, became Wayne County’s only cloth diaper-focused organization and subsequently, a member of the rapidly expanding National Diaper Bank Network. Since then, The Natural Momma Me Initiative has been distributing diapers to babies and children in the Greater Detroit Area.
