Diaper Need Program

Safe Future Foundation addresses diaper needs in Duval County, as well as surrounding counties, by providing diapers and diapering supplies to families and mother's in need. We collect diapers, pull-ups, training pants, wipes, and formula. We also collect monetary donations, which are used to purchase these supplies at discount prices. Free baby wellness items are currently distributed during our food giveaway events and social service agencies. If you need diapers please visit our contact us page.

What is 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.
