About Us

Healthy Steps Diaper Bank is on a mission to empower families and individuals throughout South Central PA to thrive by providing a reliable and adequate source of diapers and feminine hygiene products.

1 in 3 families struggle to buy diapers and 2 in 5 people struggle to purchase period products. These numbers are heart breaking! Without a sufficient supply of diapers, parents are forced to keep their babies in diapers longer than is healthy for a child or even to reuse diapers. Without a sufficient supply of feminine hygiene products, menstruators are not able to participate fully in daily life. This needs to change!

Healthy Steps Diaper Bank, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, has been a reliable resource in our community since we were founded in 2013 and we continue to offer diapers, period supplies, and hope to families in South Central PA. Neither SNAP or WIC can be used to purchase diapers, pads, or tampons leaving many people without a way to get the essential products they desperately need for themselves or their loved ones. Healthy Steps Diaper Bank works tirelessly to end diaper and period poverty because we believe everyone deserves to be clean, dry, and healthy.

We also offer a free “Healthy Diapering” training to educate mothers and caregivers on the importance of healthy diapering as well as the possibilities of infections when poor diaper habits are used. The training also includes a section about potty training.
