FOUNDED IN 2016, THE GREATER FORT LAUDERDALE DIAPER BANK IS A 501(c)3 NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION AND FIRST ESTABLISHED DIAPER BANK IN FORT LAUDERDALE. WE SERVE ADULTS, CHILDREN, BABIES, THE DISABLED, VETERANS AND THE ELDERLY.
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.
HOW IT ALL STARTED
The Greater Fort Lauderdale Diaper Bank was founded on October 13th, 2014, by Brittany and Dwayne Wolfe due to a lack of social support for new mothers. Brittany is a social worker and was having a difficult time finding diapers for her patients. With the help of our Mommy and Me group, Broward Moms Incorporated, we began assisting individuals with diapers, creating the only diaper Pantry in
South Florida at the time.
In September 2016, we started assisting several other nonprofits and officially became the Greater Fort Lauderdale Diaper Bank. To learn more about our current programs, click here.
At The Greater Fort Lauderdale Diaper Bank, we are community-oriented and committed to helping families who need basic necessities. Our team is passionate about what we do and is dedicated to ensuring that diaper need is no longer an issue that our community has to face.
