Rating: 5 stars   11 reviews

Issues: Human Services

Location: Detroit MI USA

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.

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.

Detroit Area Diaper Bank provides an essenstial service to the community. Many of the clients the partner agencies serve would go without if not for DADB. It is the only resource of its kind in the surrounding community. The communication and passion of its leadership is steller. Thank you, DADB for all you do!
