How can I receive assistance from the Diaper Bank?
We primarily distribute our diapers, incontinence products, and period products through a partner agency network of over 40 agencies located all throughout Southern Arizona. Click the “Need Assistance?” button to find the location closest to you! All our products are provided free of cost to those who are income eligible.
Do you carry adult incontinence products?
Yes, we do! We can provide adult incontinence items such as briefs, pads, bed liners, and other items free of cost to income eligible adults. You can click “Get Assistance” button to find out the location of the agency that is closest to you. We always recommend calling an agency to make sure that they have the sizes and styles available that you need.
What do I need to bring with me to receive diapers?
While we always recommend calling a partner agency to ask what documents you need prior to going to receive assistance, there are a few documents that are relatively common: You will need to bring a form of photo ID, you may be asked to provide your child’s birth certificate, you may be asked to provide a proof of need (i.e.: WIC card, EBT card, AHCCCS Card, Discount SUNTRAN Go Card
How can I donate diapers?
Do you provide cloth diapers?
Thanks to a partnership with Tucson Electric Power and Jakes Diapers, we are able to provide cloth diaper starter kits to eligible families that attend a cloth diaper workshop.

Don’t federally or state funded programs cover diapers for families and seniors?
Unfortunately, safety net programs do not cover diapers – not Food Stamps, not Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), and not Medicare (except hospice). At $107 a month or more, diapers become a luxury item for families and seniors.
I just potty trained my child and have half a bag of diapers left. Can I donate them?
Yes! We can safely handle open packages. We have stringent sanitation protocols and all diapers are re-bundled to ensure safe distribution.
