Filling a Gap
A diaper is a basic health need; as essential to a baby’s health and well-being as shelter and clothing. Not only does a diaper keep the baby healthier, happier and help them sleep, it also reduces stress of the family unit. The mental health of a parent and child are surprisingly dependent on a steady supply of diapers. Diaper need has profound effects, that can last generations.
In 2021 we were able to distribute 592,545 diapers. Since we began, we’ve already exceeded
AN EVER GROWING NEED
Most people don’t know that in Nebraska, every single day, 1 in 3 families struggle to afford diapers for their children.
No Safety Net
Programs like SNAP, MEDICAID, and WIC do not cover diapers.
Nebraska Diaper Bank provides diapers through collaborative partnerships to change lives & empower families in need.
The impact of a diaper cannot be overstated.
"Because of the Diaper Bank our community members have one less thing to worry about. We have seen mothers come through our Catholic Charities pantry lines that denied their children anything to drink in order to save money on diapers. Because of our partnership with the Diaper Bank, our mothers can adequately nourish their children. In this way the Diaper Bank is addressing both food insecurity and diaper insecurity. Thank you!"
[Receiving diapers from the Diaper Bank has] "allowed me to be able to not live check to check and be able to change my kids as often as they should be and stress less. I really appreciate what you guys do and hope someday God can bless me to be in a situation where I can give back as much as you guys have gave me."
"Having to stretch diapers between paydays has been very stressful, so receiving diapers from you allows me to buy other household necessities or not worry about making it to buy more before running out, so thank you."
"I hope you know that your impact goes far beyond the names on the reports we send you each month. Establishing a partnership with the Diaper Bank has been life changing for our community and for our agency. I cannot thank you enough for trusting us and providing us with the critical resource of diapers."
"I can save a little money for my family. Also I can use diapers as often as I want. It helps my child have less diaper rash."
