Mission Statement

The St. Louis Area Diaper Bank exists to help strengthen low-income families in the St. Louis region by ensuring access to an adequate supply of diapers, and by raising awareness about the causes and consequences of diaper need in our community.

Description

The idea to form the St. Louis Area Diaper Bank grew after the Diaper Bank’s founder, Jessica Adams, heard a story on the radio from the director of the National Diaper Bank Network about the prevalence of diaper need across the country. She pointed out that one in three mothers routinely finds herself without enough diapers to keep her child clean and dry.

Stories of families across the country making tough choices between diapers and food or medicine, being forced to leave little ones for far too long in dirty diapers, and even having to reuse soiled diapers because they couldn’t afford to buy more struck a chord with Jessica.

And when she found out that St. Louis didn't already have a diaper bank, Jessica decided to start one herself.
