Baby Basics (CAFS)

The Baby Basics program serves low-income families living and/or working in Bergen County by providing them with free formula, diapers, and other vitally needed supplies for their babies.

Each family is supported for up to two years and once each month visit our location in Paramus to pick up their supplies.

  • Do you have one or more infants under the age of 2 years?
  • Are you living or working in Bergen County and struggling to make ends meet?

With the help of generous donors like you, Baby Basics has been keeping babies happy, healthy, and dry for over 25 years! Baby Basics provides free nutritional formula and diapers for babies, newborns through two years of age, along with a safety net of emotional support and referrals for low-income families living and/or working in Bergen County.

Hosting a supply drive for Baby Basics is easy and fun. Local diaper drives allow us to collect thousands of diapers each year, helping to ensure that no parent has to choose between diapers and food, medicine, or paying rent to keep their babies strong and healthy. Thank you for helping us to change lives—from the bottom up!
