How the Austin Diaper Bank Started
Austin Diaper Bank is dedicated to providing diapers to Central Texas families who need a clean, reliable supply of diapers for a healthy and comfortable quality of life.
Austin Diaper Bank was founded in June 2013 after Austin mom Beverly Hamilton read an article about the silent crisis of diaper need. Hamilton learned more about the National Diaper Bank Network and its mission to diaper children across the country. When she saw the Austin area had no diaper bank, but high rates of poverty, she decided to take action and created the Austin Diaper Bank.
Since 2013 we have grown in size and impact. We serve six counties in Central Texas and provide diapers, wipes and period supplies to over 10,000 families each year.
Austin Diaper Bank does not distribute diapers to individuals; we provide diapers to our partner agencies who work with those struggle to afford enough diapers each month. Our diapers come from donations, diaper drives and donated funds.
