Almost 50 organizations in Connecticut provide free baby stuff. The assistance available ranges widely, but it can include everything from diapers to furniture or infant formula as well. Any type of assistance is generally for low income families and those in poverty, but in some cases either emergency baby formula or diapers may be issued.
Most of the stuff available at an organization depends on donations from the community. This means that there is a limited quantity of supplies, and unfortunately not everyone will be able to receive help. But every effort is made by the Connecticut companies to support low income parents, including single moms and dads.
Examples of what may be provided include cloth or disposable diapers, free baby food, wipes, cribs, car seats, beds, and various other baby items. But it really depends on what any agency, whether a diaper bank or thrift store/clothing closet, has in stock. More information, as well as numbers to apply at, are below.
