Frequently Asked Questions
Learn More About The Nebraska Diaper Bank
HOW DOES A DIAPER BANK WORK?
Nebraska Diaper Bank provides diapers to social service organizations that are helping families in need through comprehensive programs and services. Nebraska Diaper Bank has found that distributing diapers in this way ensures they reach those who need them most. By working with organizations that are already well established in the community and currently working with families in need, Nebraska Diaper Bank creates collaboration and synergistic partnerships–we provide the resource of diapers to reach the greatest amount of families in need, and they can more actively provide relief to each family and help end the cycle of poverty through their additional programming.

WHY DOESN’T NEBRASKA DIAPER BANK DISTRIBUTE CLOTH DIAPERS?
While cloth diapers may save money in the long term, they require an initial investment of money and time that many low-income families can’t afford. To use cloth diapers a family must either hire a diaper service at a monthly charge or have reliable access to laundry facilities. Sometimes people living in poverty do not have affordable access to washing facilities or detergent. Many laundromats prohibit the washing of cloth diapers in their machines for sanitary reasons. The majority of licensed daycare centers do not accept cloth diapers, and require parents and caregivers to provide a steady supply of disposable diapers. A child being turned away from a daycare center can mean a day of missed work for a parent and a cut to their already low income.
