The Detroit Area Diaper Bank, Inc. is a Canton-based nonprofit 501(c)(3) charitable organization serving Southeast Michigan.
Their mission is to raise awareness about the unmet need for diapers among Metro Detroit's most vulnerable populations - babies from low-income homes, seniors and people with disabilities - and build a network to help meet that need.
Since diapers aren't paid for or provided by WIC, Food Stamps or Medicare, the Diaper Bank focuses on raising funds and collecting diapers, then distributes them to partner nonprofit and state agencies working with individuals and families in crisis.
The Diaper Bank partners with organizations such as family services agencies, crisis nurseries, homeless shelters, domestic abuse shelters, food pantries, senior services agencies and faith-based outreach organizations who provide the diapers directly to their clients in need.
The Detroit Area Diaper Bank launched April 12, 2009, and is modeled after the Southern Arizona Community Diaper Bank, the nation's first, founded in Tucson in 1994.
