MHM has four programs to help us achieve our mission of keeping babies safe, healthy and happy. Below you can read more about each and learn ways to get involved and help us fight childhood poverty.
DISTRIBUTION PROGRAM: MHM distributes 300,000+ critical essentials to 12,000 individuals per year. This includes 200,000+ diapers per year. Two part-time staff, the program director, Rebecca Tucker, and the warehouse manager, run the distribution program. We started delivering donations to community partners who could not make it to our warehouse as a result of a new partnership with a car dealership who uses their van to deliver goods for nonprofits at no cost.
EARLY LITERACY PROGRAM: MHM distributes literature in English and Spanish to parents/caregivers on the importance of early reading, talking and singing with children. We also ensure that each child we serve receives at least one book with every wish list fulfillment.
DENTAL PROGRAM: Through partnerships with local Dentists, in 2018 MHM began distributing kid’s toothbrushes and toothpaste, as well as literature about proper dental hygiene to our families.
ADVOCACY PROGRAM: MHM engages in advocacy and awareness-building efforts related to diaper need. We organize diaper drives in our local communities to highlight the importance of this issue and encourage people to donate diapers or dollars to make an impact. We also participate in Diaper Need Awareness Week and received six diaper need proclamations from local elected officials in 2018.
