Our organization is not set up to help at the individual level, that is where each of the churches comes in, we serve other agencies, volunteers, and first responders.

Notice

We are still providing as many services as we can, however, for the safety of staff and clients, we will temporarily transition to appointment-based services and distribute additional supplies to families and individuals. To make an appointment, please call: (210) 731-8118 option 1.

Donations are needed: We are limiting the contact we have with diapers before we send them to families in need. During this health crisis, we are in dire need of: diapers sizes 3, 5, 6; menstrual pads (not liners or tampons); and incontinence products. If you have a donation you would like to drop off at our facilities, please call our Program Resources Officer, Linda Lopez: (210) 461-1871.

In the chaos of a natural disaster, many evacuees lack the time or space to bring many items, especially diapers, wipes, and other healthcare products.

Meanwhile, neither federal nor international disaster relief programs include diapers.

The Texas Diaper Bank fills this gap by providing these healthcare products, without which instances of diaper rash requiring medical treatment may develop and when treatment is not available, serious or even fatal complications may occur.
