The Rebecca Foundation’s Cloth Diaper Closet is a national program and advocacy organization taking action to end diaper need in the United States. Our mission is to bring clean, reusable cloth diapers to economically disadvantaged families, Military families overseas, foster families, and special needs families, ensuring cloth for all.
We provide clean reusable cloth diapers to those families who cannot afford the continued cost of disposable diapers or the initial start up cost associated with switching full time to cloth diapers. We ease the expense by loaning diapers for a period of 1 year allowing families to save a significant amount of personal funds monthly. When families have been able to purchase their own supply of cloth diapers they are able to return their loan so another family may benefit.
