Did you know that in extreme cases of diaper need, Moms have cleaned out and reused wet or soiled diapers? Join the St. Sabina Respect Life Committee in collaborating with the Baby Grace Program to help families in our community that are a part of this statistic.
Baby Grace was started about 15 years ago by Juli Youcum, Anne Farmer, and a group of volunteers, to offer teen moms help and support. It has blossomed into much more than Juli and Anne ever thought it would. There are currently 18 chapters that serve different areas of Missouri. All chapters are run differently, under the umbrella that a mom will not be judged by anyone volunteering in that chapter. The Baby Grace mission is to share God’s love and grace by offering material, emotional, and spiritual support and development for families with young children.
Our Baby Grace chapter is located in the Raymore Christian Church. They are especially in need of size 5 & 6 diapers. Right now they are able to help families with 50 diapers per baby and a package of wipes per family each month. That’s an incredible increase from the 12 diapers per baby and one package of wipes per family each month, that they were able to help with four to five years ago when our parish first started hosting a diaper drive for Raymore Baby Grace. We hope that by hosting this diaper drive we will continue to help Raymore Baby Grace work towards eliminating diaper need in our community.
