How do I receive diapers?
Indiana Diaper Bank collaborates with a network of amazing social service agencies. Our Diaper Distribution Network is committed to connecting those in need with a reliable supply of diapers and other needed resources.
Distribution Network Partners
Our distribution partners provide diapers monthly as part of their on-going services and programs. Some of our partners provide emergency diapers on a walk-in basis, however, most do not. If you need diapers for your child(ren), please call 2-1-1 and tell them your exact situation of need. The representative will have a full list of agencies in which you can enroll in their programs to receive diapers.
We do not Provide Diapers - directly
The Indiana Diaper Bank does not provide diapers directly to families, our Diaper Distribution Network does.
Please use the listings below to find a local organization for diapers and other items and reach out to that organization directly.
Who is in the Diaper Distribution Network?
Collectively, our Distribution Network delivers an average of 12,500 diapers to 500 families each month in Indianapolis, IN. Since we began, we’ve distributed over 150,000 diapers!
Indiana Diaper Bank has found that distributing diapers and other products through community partners ensures they reach those who need them most. It also provides partnering organizations with a resource – diapers – they are not normally able to provide, increasing the services they can offer and attracting clients who could benefit from their mission.
By working with organizations that are already well-established in the community and currently working with families in need, Indiana Diaper Bank ensures that the diapers collected are distributed to infants and babies in the most efficient and timely manner.
