We’re Turning 5!

Over 150,000 Oregon Children Live in Poverty

No family should have to choose between purchasing food or diapers for their children. Our mission is to provide free diapers and diapering supplies to low-income families through community agency partnerships.

Due to limited financial resources, some caregivers are forced to excessively delay changing their child’s diaper. Prolonging a child’s contact with soiled diapers not only poses health risks to the child, but also impacts a child’s performance and participation in education and early care programs.

What Happens When Parents Can′t Afford Diapers?

Diaper expenses are an obstacle for one in three caregivers because they are not covered by government assistance programs such as SNAP and WIC. This oversight causes potential health risks for infants and many difficulties for parents who can’t afford diapers.

PDX Diaper Bank works to provide families with disposable and alternative diapering options. We strongly feel that providing a cloth diaper option to families is important in order to provide additional health, financial, and environmental benefits.

Our Services

PDX Diaper Bank provides free diapers and diapering supplies to low-income families with children, older adults, and individuals with disabilities in Portland and the surrounding area. We do this in collaboration with partner agencies. With the support of the community and sponsors, we are able to achieve our mission. PDX Diaper Bank distributes cloth and disposable diapers to organizations/families.

In addition to supplying diapers to organizations and income qualified families, we are dedicated to providing community education. We offer a 45 minute “cloth diapering on a budget” workshop free of charge for other nonprofit organizations to benefit their clients. If your organization would like to invite PDX Diaper Bank into its classroom, please contact us at myranda@pdxdiaperbank.org.

If you are a family interested in participating in a class, PDX Diaper Bank does offer free workshops regularly. Please pre-register for the class by emailing: info@pdxdiaperbank.org. Please include your child’s birthdate (for sizing) in the registration. If your family receives services such as SNAP, WIC, or state insurance, you are automatically eligible for services from PDX Diaper Bank.

“If I had the time, I would have loved to sent you all a good old fashioned hand written thank you card.  I appreciate so much getting to attend your cloth diapering class and even though I have been using cloth for a while, I learned a lot!  Thank you so much for what you do — it is so important and I am grateful for having the resource in these tough times.”    – Portland Mama
