In 2016 five young women learned about the Diaper Gap and decided that they could help- founding Houston Diaper Assistance Program, a 501c3 organization.

1 in 3 American families struggle to afford diapers

Most government assistance programs DO NOT cover diapers 


Without diapers, babies can’t participate in early childhood education programs

Diapers cost $70-$80per month; babies need 6-12 diapers each day

Without transportation, buying diapers at a convenience store rather than a large “big box” store can significantly increase the monthly cost of diapers

Diaper need contributes to perpetuating poverty by limiting opportunities that help families improve their situations
