What The Number Tell Us 2018

Kathy Schwinden

669—The number of requests for help we received in our office, with 511 clients aged 27 and over.
605—The number of people receiving diapers. There are few groups in our community that help with diapers, which continue to be a basic need.
499—The number of referrals we received from WIC (government
program providing food for women, infants, and children) and from other agencies. We encourage breastfeeding, but often our clients come to us at a time when it isn’t possible.
62—Layettes were given to newborns.
308— Requests for infant and toddler clothing. As we well know, bringing a baby into the world is just the beginning. Those newborns keep growing! These statistics remind us how important it is to be able to offer continuing support to struggling families during those crucial first years.
