The Diaper Bank Provides Free Diapers to Poor Families

Help us raise funds to provide diapers to poor and low-income babies by making a contribution or by starting your own fundraising campaign!

The Diaper Bank (TDB) was founded in June 2004 as The New Haven Diaper Bank in response to the lack of public assistance for purchasing diapers for poor and low-income families. Recognizing that an inadequate supply of diapers puts families with young children at an increased risk for health and parenting complications, The New Haven Diaper Bank (NHDB) began distributing diapers to poor and low-income families in New Haven through approved social service agencies. Since 2004, The Diaper Bank has distributed more than 20,000,000 free diapers to families through our nationally recognized Diaper Distribution Network (DDN) of local partnership agencies in New Haven, Hartford, Fairfield, Middlesex and Windham Counties.

The Diaper Bank's mission is threefold in scope:

  1. To ensure that families living in poverty have an adequate supply of diapers for their infants and toddlers;
  2. To raise community awareness that "basic human needs" include diapers and that these needs are not being met for children living in poverty;
  3. To advocate for policy reform so that diapers are included in the definition of and provision for the "basic human needs" of families.
