The Diaper Bank provides diapers to those under the poverty line where no public assistance exists. They recognize that an inadequate supply of diapers puts families with young children at an increased risk for health related problems and potential abuse. Through a network of social service providers the Diaper Bank prevents duplication of services, limits administrative spending, and prioritizes clients in the direst of circumstances.
In the coming years the Diaper Bank of Southern Arizona plans to meet the local need 100% and needs your help to do it. Find out more at diaperbank.org.
