Ready to get involved and start your own campaign to help raise funds for families in need?
Diapers can’t be purchased with food stamps or WIC. Diapers are expensive and cost over $100 a month per child. With 46% of children in Idaho under the age of three living in poor or low-income families, there are 32,000+ families likely struggling to provide basic necessities like food, shelter and hygiene.
The consequences of diaper need are many, with health concerns, delaying development, and maternal depression being just a few.
Learn about Diaper Need
An Idaho where our communities band together to ensure that every baby has their basic needs met
Building stronger, healthier families in Idaho by providing access to basic hygiene to keep babies clean, dry and happy
There is zero governmental assistance for basic hygiene items like diapers. A lack of diapers is often a hidden consequence of poverty. Many Idaho babies are being left in wet diapers all day, which is not only uncomfortable for a baby, but a real health risk. By giving families something as simple as a diaper, we give them a glimpse of hope and a chance to get back on track financially and reduce overall family stress.
Diapers are essential to a child’s wellbeing and healthy development. Not having enough diapers can cause significant stress and mental health issues for the family. Diaper Need is a strong predictor of maternal depression.

The Idaho Diaper Bank was founded in 2014 by Shawna Walz and her family. Shawna was compelled to create the non-profit after learning about the tremendous need for diapers in our community and the negative impacts that result when families don’t have access to diapers…a very essential and basic need.
