1 in 2 families with young children struggle to afford diapers.

2 in 5 individuals struggle to purchase period products.

Neither WIC nor SNAP may be used to purchase diapers, pads, or tampons.

We are on a mission to empower families and individuals throughout South Central Pennsylvania to thrive by providing a reliable and adequate source of diapers and period products.


Over a Decade of Helping Families!

Since we were founded in 2013 by Sue Speese, Healthy Steps Diaper Bank has worked tirelessly to provide over 3.75 million diapers to local families who can’t afford enough for their children.

Along the way, with supporters like you, we’ve made a substantial impact on the lives of families, babies, and caregivers throughout South Central PA. To the baby suffering from chronic diaper rashes and sleepless nights. To the mother trying to go to work but doesn’t have enough diapers for daycare. To the dad making the impossible decision between filling up the car or buying a box of diapers.

With your support, together we have made a difference in our community, and that is worth celebrating!
