Mission Statement

The Diaper Bank of Chicago empowers Chicagoland families in need by reducing diaper insecurity and working to bring awareness to the overlooked need of diapers.

Description

The Diaper Bank of Chicago partners with social service agencies to provide diaper supplies to Chicago's neediest families.

Diaper need is real. Diapers are expensive, averaging around $80-$100 a month for one child. Federal assistance programs, such as SNAP (formerly called food stamps) and WIC, do not cover diapers. Parents are forced to make hard decisions with limited resources. Disposable diapers are typically a requirement of most childcare centers, making them a necessity for working parents. Many ask, why not cloth diapers? The answer is simple: one, many childcare facility only allow disposable; two, many families lack washer and dryers; three, many laundromats won’t allow washing diapers in their facilities.
