The New Haven Diaper Bank (NHDB), founded in 2004, seeks to provide diapers to as many needy children as possible. We are a local, volunteer driven non-profit organization dedicated to helping young children and their families.
Our mission is grounded in three basic beliefs:
We believe that children's basic needs should be met and that diapers are a basic need.
We believe that children should not have to spend a full day or more in the same diaper just because their families are poor.
We believe the best way to address this need is through the social service providers who already serve the community.
With no federal or state supported source of free or reduced cost diapers, young children in New Haven are suffering every day.
