Texas diaper bank

The Texas Diaper Bank is a 501 C3 non-profit organization whose mission is to address the diaper gap and its impact on individuals in crisis. Established in 1997 by ten United Methodist churches, the Texas Diaper Bank strengthens the lives of over 33,000 individuals annually through these three essential programs.

    1. Emergency Assistance – directly provides Bexar County families and seniors in crisis access to diapers, incontinence supplies, wipes, and other healthcare products.
    2. Earn and Learn – reduces the diaper gap by combining two vital components of self-sufficiency: education and access to resources.
    3. Family Care Connections – lifts families out of poverty by strengthening participation in partner agency continuing education, higher education, and job training programs that provide on-site child care services.
    4. Housing and Safe Haven – connects clients not only to the diapers for their child, but also to agencies that locate shelter for these families.
    5. Disaster Relief – supplies those affected by natural disasters in Texas with diapers—the only organization in Texas specifically providing victims diapers.
    6. Incontinence Gap Program – Provides special needs youth and adults with incontinence products during the interim application period for a Medicaid program.

    These program(s) services are provided directly to families or through partnerships with other nonprofit agencies.
