Babies with dirty diapers are fussy babies. Fussy babies are far more likely to be abused by their parents or caregivers. The Parent Place opened the doors of The Parent Place Diaper Pantry in January 2006. To date, over 2,205 babies and their families have been served.

While diapers are the draw for families the true purpose of the program is to create a relationship with families of children 2 years and under. Quite often these families have little or no support system during this very trying time. The diapers for this program are donated by concerned community members. Cash donations support the staffing of the Diaper Pantry Coordinator, services and purchase diapers. Over 200 unduplicated babies per month are served.

The Parent Place Diaper Pantry will be open at the following times:

Tuesday & Wednesday – 10am – 3pm
