The Diaper Bank Initiative was started in early 2018, after the Urban Child Institute staff members noticed there was a gap between diapers provided in the community and those who needed them. The collaborative is made up of partners from U of M, Le Bonheur, Dads and Diapers, Sweet Cheeks Diaper Ministry, Shelby County Volunteers Services, and other community agencies. Our goal is to pool our resources to create a diaper bank here in Shelby County. A diaper bank is a nonprofit that distributes diapers to agencies that provide wraparound services for families and babies in need.
