Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Emergency Assistance, Human Services

Mission: The Detroit Area Diaper Bank's mission is to build a network to help meet the unmet need for diapers in our community's most vulnerable populations -- babies from low-income households, the elderly and people with disabilities because NO other support for diapers exists.

Results: The Detroit Area Diaper Bank has collected and distributed almost 1.7 million diapers and incontinence supplies to more than 60 nonprofits and state agencies across Metro Detroit since its founding in April 2009.

Target demographics: Babies from low-income households, seniors and people with disabilities struggling with incontinence issues.

Geographic areas served: Metro Detroit -- Macomb, Oakland, Wayne, Washtenaw, Monroe Counties

Programs: The Diaper Bank partners with established nonprofits who are already qualifying people for need and working with them toward "whole" solutions. We partner with family services agencies, homeless shelters, crisis nurseries, domestic abuse shelters, food pantries, senior agencies, faith-based outreach organizations, disability networks and state human services agencies -- we become their diaper resource, increasing their capacity to more fully support our neighbors in need.

The DADB has helped our organization greatly. I am a case manager at Community & Home Supports and we are a nonprofit agency that assists the homeless population of Detroit, Hamtramck, and Highland Park, MI and many of our clients are on tight budgets or have very low incomes to support their families with. The DADB helps our clients by providing them with diapers for their children. Diapers are a very stressful expense for many families, especially single mothers, which happens to be a large percent of the clients we assist. Without the diaper donations from DADB, many of our clients would be struggling in many ways. We are very thankful to have the pleasure of working with DADB and our clients are also very happy to have the help of receiving diapers so they are able to save the rest of their income for other life expenses!

Detroit Area Diaper Bank provides an essential service to those who struggle with obtaining basic resources for their infants. Stretching diaper funds by changing less often leads to increased incidents of diaper rash, and, in some cases more serious conditions, such as streph and staphn infections. By providing an adequate supply of diapers the DADB is certainly a major contributor to the overall health and well being of these families.

We recently joined Detroit Area Diaper Bank Inc. and are quite pleased. The Diaper Bank provides diapers to many pregnancy resource centers including ours, Pregnancy Aid Inc. of Eastern Wayne County. We have almost 1000 new clients each year and many of them desperately need diapers. Having a resource like the Diaper Bank helps us serve Detroit families in need. We at Pregnancy Aid are also impressed with the Diaper Bank's resourcefulness. They recently informed us of a recycling program they are involved in where organizations collect the plastic packaging from diaper packs and wipes, and turn them in to the Diaper Bank to be recycled. The money earned goes back into the community. The Diaper Bank provides a needed service and we at Pregnancy Aid are lucky to benefit from it.

My church host a Mom and Baby Club (The Stork's Nest-Carter). We are also a member of the Detroit Area Diaper Bank. The ladies and 2 men that come to the club for support in the development of their children and families tell me stories of how the diapers that they receive help better their lives and save money to provide necessaties. When the cash assistance was cut off for so many Michigan families parents worried about the cost of non-food items for their families with diapers for the babies being the top priority. We thank and salute the Detroit Area Diaper Bank for the much need work that they do which takes the burden of locating diapers off our plate and makes time available to focus on hunger, family development and infant moratility.
