About Bridget Cutler
Bridget Cutler is the founder and executive director of Moms Helping Moms Foundation – a New Jersey nonprofit, baby supply, and diaper bank. She founded Moms Helping Moms in 2011, shortly after having her first child. While still adjusting to new motherhood, Bridget read a magazine article that changed her life. It was about a mother who decided to give her child up for adoption because she couldn’t stand hearing her cry from hunger. She was overcome with the thought that no mother should ever face that choice, and no child should ever go hungry. She started collecting and distributing baby items from her garage in Hoboken. Since that day in 2011, Bridget has grown Moms Helping Moms Foundation from a small initiative to a thriving nonprofit that distributes hundreds of thousands of items, including diapers, clothing, strollers, safe sleep solutions, and books to low-income families annually.
Bridget was recognized as a CNN Hero in 2015; received the New Jersey State Governor’s Jefferson Award in the Founders / Innovators Category in 2018 for her leadership, dedication, and commitment to addressing childhood poverty; and received a Russ Berrie Making a Difference Award in 2019.
