1 in 3 American families lack a sufficient amount of diapers to keep their child clean, dry & healthy.
The numbers are staggering, and they stack up quick
The average child under age 3 uses 6-10 diapers per day, costing families nearly $100 each month per child according to the National Diaper Bank.
Working families often rely on childcare facilities, many of which require parents to provide a day's worth of disposable diapers for their child. As members of families with at least one working parent, 31% of infants & toddlers still live in a low-income family.
Almost half of Cincinnati children live in poverty. Currently, there are no government assistance programs that directly fund diapers - a basic need for all infants and toddlers - despite Medicaid providing coverage for 1/3 of births in the USA each year.
When children don't have access to diapers they may be left in soiled diapers for longer than what is appropriate (and sometimes, for days at a time) posing risks their health and well being, like diaper rash, urinary tract and staph infections.
When enough diapers aren't available for the day, children can't participate in early childhood programs, which can impact a parent or caregiver's ability to go to work.
Diaper Need impacts the physical, mental, emotional and financial well being of everyone.
Right now, 16,600 Greater Cincinnati children are suffering from diaper need. What can you do to help?
