The Bella Cares Mission: 

Our mission is to ensure organizations serving the under-served community always have access to their most basic needs, and redistribute the items they do not need to reduce waste. We remove the dehumanization of handouts, and empower our most underserved community members to have the dignity and benefits that come with good hygiene and choice.

What is hygiene poverty?

Hygiene Insecurity, also widely known as “hygiene poverty”,  is the inability to afford everyday hygiene products, such as shampoo, toilet paper, grooming products, dish soap, and more. Accessing hygiene products for families living with limited income can be surprisingly difficult. 

Nearly 25% of families have trouble affording essential things like food, bills, and healthcare, which is considered the “heat, eat, or health” dilemma This can lead to having to make tough choices each day.

When you can't afford basic hygiene supplies, it can negatively impact your physical and mental health. Having a low income and struggling to afford basic needs increases the risk of anxiety by 275% and depression by 253%.
