Mothers in need have children in need. Did you know that a recent national study found that 1 in 3 families struggle to afford diapers for their children? The lack of diapers effects the child's health and safety and the mother's well being and self-esteem. The River is proud to announce that it has been awarded $5,000.00 from the Harris Fund of Washington County East Tennessee Foundation to create a diaper subsidy distribution program called "Changing Lives From The Bottom Up." We will be preparing to start the program by early spring and will work on changing the lives of the women and children we serve from the bottom up!
