DID YOU KNOW?
About 30% of mothers report not being able to afford diapers for their children, and one in twelve admit to stretching their diaper supply by leaving their child in a wet diaper or partially cleaning the diaper and reusing it?
The Mission of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Diaper Bank is to provide diapers to disadvantaged families and Partnering Community Organizations, who support families in need. We are committed to providing education, support and advocacy as a way to foster strong community ties and values while aiding families in gaining access to the resources needed to succeed and flourish.
