A diaper CAN change a life.
One diaper at a time.
A diaper CAN change a life. Access to diapers has the power to positively impact a family’s mental and physical health and well-being. That’s why Diaper Train is committed to a future where every family in Wake County has access to this basic need. As the only diaper bank exclusively serving Wake County, we not only distribute to families directly, but we also partner with more than 100 local agencies to deliver 550,000+ diapers to thousands of families each year. We believe that no family should ever have to worry about how they’ll get their next diaper.
Rallying a community response.
The impact access to diapers has on families in Wake County goes beyond the number of diapers we distribute each year. While we are proud of that number, change happens as we focus on creating a better response to diaper poverty.
