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.

In the chaos of a natural disaster, many evacuees lack the time or space to bring many items, especially diapers, wipes, and other healthcare products. Meanwhile, neither federal nor international disaster relief programs include diapers. The Texas Diaper Bank fills this gap by providing these healthcare products, without which instances of diaper rash requiring medical treatment may develop--and when treatment is not available, serious or even fatal complications may occur.

Lessening the physical health impacts that the diaper gap inflicts, the Texas Diaper Bank focuses on child health and wellness classes. Through an exclusive partnership with Methodist Healthcare Ministries, the Texas Diaper Bank offers My Healthy Child classes in 8 counties. Taught by its team of professional Wesley Nurses from Methodist Healthcare Ministries, these workshops cover child healthcare topics that enable participants to parent better. To complement the skills that parents learn in the My Healthy Child class, the Texas Diaper Bank supplements materials that class participants learn about to apply these skills later.
