What is Diaper Need?

The typical infant needs over 2,900 diapers each year. The gap between the number of diapers a baby needs and the number of diapers the family can afford is called diaper need.

Extreme Poverty Rates: Females 25 - 34 Largest Demographic Living in Poverty. According to the Census Bureau, 16% of the population for whom poverty status is determined in Duval County, FL (143k out of 891k people) live below the poverty line, a number that is higher than the national average of 13.1%. The largest demographic living in poverty are Females 25 - 34, followed by Females 18 - 24 and then Females 35 - 44.

Lack of Government Assistance:

  • 1 in 3 American families reports experiencing diaper need.

  • 5 million children in the U.S. aged three or younger live in poor or low-income families.


Diapers Are a Necessity:

  • Without an adequate supply of diapers, families are left with no choice but to keep their children in dirty diapers or to re-use soiled ones. Babies who remain in a soiled diaper too long are exposed to potential health risks, such as yeast and bacterial infections, and severe diaper rash.

  • Most childcare centers and early childhood education programs, including free and subsidized ones require parents to provide disposable diapers. Cloth diapers are not accepted at many childcare centers.

  • Parents in diaper need miss an average of 4 days of work per month.

How Can You Help?

Diaper need has a physical effect on children and a psychological effect on parents who cannot provide this basic necessity for their children. If you would like to support our diaper program, please consider donating, hosting a diaper drive, or donating supplies.

  • Your funds will go directly towards diaper program operations: purchasing diapers, wipes, and formula that will be distributed to individuals in need and partner agencies.

  • Host a Diaper Drive or Help Spread the Word! #DiaperNeed
