The Texas Diaper Bank focuses on meeting one vital, yet often forgotten basic need that impacts the physical, mental and economic well-being of individuals: diapers.
Diapers are necessary healthcare products, but too costly for families in crisis. (Babies typically use 6-12 diapers daily, a monthly cost of $125/child.) Meanwhile, many federally-funded safety net programs, including Medicaid, WIC, and SNAP, do not subsidize diapers. Even if parents are working, childcare may be limited because most daycares require diapers.
And the diaper gap affects not only infants and toddlers, but also seniors. As the aging population increase, incontinence health issues also increase. One in three seniors will suffer from incontinence at some point.
