Diapers banks are a resource for people who cannot afford to purchase needed absorbent incontinence products due to financial difficulties. Diaper banks are only one way that a person may work to reduce the costs associated with incontinence products. Other suggestions are below the diaper bank listing.
We have tried to not include organizations that only provide infant diapers in the listing below. However, services change and some may only serve infants, and others may add adult products as the need grows.
Some diaper banks distribute products through local agencies such as nonprofit organizations like United Way, food banks, senior centers, religious organizations (churches and synagogues), and school family resource centers. Individuals who cannot afford incontinence products should contact their local diaper bank and the bank will work to get products to the person in need.
Please note: The Simon Foundation for Continence does not have products to give away, and we do not sell any products. We also are unable to provide compensation, grants or reimbursement for products.
