Texas Diaper Bank (Nonprofit / Christian )

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.

The Get FIT (Families in Training) program is a preventive program aimed at averting Type II diabetes, obesity, and sedentary lifestyles for school-aged children and their families.

The program is offered throughout the academic year at various school districts, and in the summer as a one-month youth summer camp. Get FIT integrates nutrition, physical fitness, and character education to not only support the physical needs of students and their families but also facilitate the healing of the mind, body, and spirit.

Get FIT's goal is to transform the lives of people in medically underserved, rural communities. The program focuses on actively engaging community members and stakeholders in the planning, designing, and delivery of services and programs that meet the unmet needs of their community.

Get FIT is currently offered in Batesville, Cotulla, San Antonio, Santa Rosa, and Uvalde. Enrollment is free and open year-round on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are interested in bringing Get FIT to your school or finding a program near you, call the Get FIT manager at 1-800-959-6673.

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.
