                             The Baby Closet

The Baby Closet's mission is to provide emergency supplemental assistance for needy families with babies ages newborn up to age 3. By reducing economic stress on families, we improve their quality of life and strengthen familial bonds thereby supporting the most vulnerable in society: babies.

Our mission is a strong affirmation of our Catholic belief that we support human life from conception through natural death.

The Baby Closet exists entirely on donations and support from Catholic Charities, local parishes, schools, and other civic and private organizations.

We assist any family in need. A family can receive assistance once a month. Types of assistance include: diapers, wipes, formula, bottles, baby wash/shampoo/lotion, and other baby essential items.

Families needing assistance can visit The Baby Closet on 1st-4th Wednesdays from 1:00 pm - 2:15 p.m., 1st - 4th Fridays from 11:45 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. and the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month from 11:15-12:15 p.m.  5th Wednesday, Friday and Saturday:  CLOSED.  No appointment is necessary. However, a photo ID (such as a driver's license or passport) along with a secondary form of identification with a home address is required.
