Diapers

Our Diaper Distribution Program aims to prevent children from remaining in wet or soiled diapers for prolonged periods, promoting their health and well-being. Shockingly, one in three families struggles to afford an adequate supply of diapers, leading to hygiene issues and potential health risks for infants and children. In Arizona, where 21% of families live in poverty, the need for diapers is acute and widespread. Despite Medicaid covering nearly half of all births, no social service agencies, apart from diaper banks, offer diapers as a fundamental necessity for children without disabilities. This critical gap highlights the importance of our mission. Diaper need affects families across all communities, and the Arizona Diaper Bank takes pride in pioneering efforts to address this pressing issue. As a leader in the movement to end diaper need in Arizona, we are committed to ensuring that every child has access to clean, dry diapers for their health, dignity, and well-being.

Adult Incontinence

Our Adult Incontinence Distribution Program is dedicated to improving the quality of life for adults in Arizona who face challenges affording incontinence products. Incontinence is a prevalent health issue that impacts one in three individuals daily, surpassing the combined prevalence of cancer, diabetes, and asthma. This program specifically caters to the needs of the elderly, individuals with disabilities, those recovering from surgeries, and over half of women who have given birth. Adult incontinence is a common experience that nearly everyone will encounter at some point in their lives. The Arizona Diaper Bank takes pride in supporting adults in need by providing essential incontinence products. Our goal is to ensure that everyone in our community can maintain their dignity and well-being.

Period Poverty

Our Period Supply Program is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for menstruators across Arizona. Shockingly, one in four teens has missed class because they lacked adequate period supplies. To address this critical issue, the Arizona Diaper Bank collaborates directly with school nurses and resource officers, providing essential products in schools and ensuring that students can focus on their education without worrying about their menstrual hygiene. Furthermore, one in three low-income women miss work, school, or other commitments due to insufficient period supplies. Recognizing that period supplies are necessities, we at the Arizona Diaper Bank take pride in supporting advocacy efforts to end period poverty and ensure that every menstruator has access to the supplies they need for comfort, health, and dignity.
