Diaper Bank of Central Arizona Helps Struggling Families

My Local News Arizona - Advertisement

Why does Arizona need a diaper bank? Struggling families need diapers. Diapers are expensive and the ongoing need lasts until the infant is potty-trained. 

There are many wonderful non-profit agencies that help with hunger, homelessness, and other needs. There is only one diaper bank in Phoenix that helps to support these agencies with diapers so that they can focus on the other important needs: the Diaper Bank of Central Arizona.

Why would a struggling Arizona family need a diaper bank? 

  • Federal programs like food stamps and WIC do not cover diaper costs
  • 30% of low-income mothers report they cannot change their children’s diapers as often as they’d like
  • Many families who need diapers are working parents but their low-wage jobs do not cover their children’s basic needs
  • Childcare providers require parents to have a supply of disposable diapers – no diapers, no daycare, which means no employment for parents
  • In Arizona, one in four of our children lives below the Federal Poverty Line

The Diaper Bank of Central Arizona is a program of Homeward Bound, a nonprofit creating pathways out of poverty for homeless families ready to make a change. Working together, we are able to break the cycles of poverty for even more children and their parents.

The Diaper Bank of Central Arizona provides diapers to partner agencies that work with people in need. Our partner agencies have agreed to provide an emergency supply of diapers to those in immediate need.

Listed below are our partner agencies that have agreed to provide an emergency supply of diapers to those in immediate need.

Please note: due to our limited supply, these groups are only able to distribute a handful of diapers in a given time period, typically enough to get you through the day or to the next day. Our emergency suppliers cannot provide a regular supply of diapers, as there simply aren’t the resources to allow this.If you have ongoing diaper supply needs, please be sure to connect with our partner agencies, who can hopefully work with you on a more comprehensive level to provide support.
