Diaper Bank Strategic Plan
The Diaper Bank has seen an increase in need for our services as the economy has struggled. We are meeting this increased need with new strategic direction. Today we distribute nearly 1 million diapers and incontinence items annually. In the next 5-10 years we plan to increase our distribution to 1.5 million. We know this will take an incredible amount of support from the Southern Arizona community, but in the end the Diaper Bank of Southern Arizona will be distributing as many diapers as are currently being requested. Together we can meet the new face of poverty with a package of diapers. Read our letter for more details about how we plan to meet the diaper need in our community.
We know that people and families who need diapers probably need other social services as well. For these reasons, we provide diapers to existing agencies that work with people in need. Our partners include: crisis nurseries, domestic violence shelters, senior centers, and congregations for a variety of religious affiliations.
