Cloth diapers provide a sustainable option for families with diaper need. If your family is interested in cloth diapering and qualifies for the program (currently receiving assistance such as WIC, TANF or another program including disaster relief), apply to receive a set of cloth diapers to loan for a set period of time. If your family is already using cloth diapers and you are now experiencing diaper need, you may still qualify for this program. Every application is carefully considered, and diaper packs are distributed on a case-by-case basis to eligible families.


Babies Need Bottoms is a nonprofit diaper bank that relies on community donations of cloth diapers and financial donations to purchase supplies.
