Our Mission/ Vision
Every Bottom Covered is a Diaper Bank addressing diaper need by providing diapers and wipes to low-income families in Western New York. Our organization allows families to receive supplies on a monthly basis from birth until the child turns 3 years of age. We also assist with referrals to other services in the community and work to raise awareness on how diaper need affects the entire community, not just the child who is in diapers as there are medical and socioemotional as well as economic effects.

What are the consequences of diaper need? One in three families suffers from diaper need in the U.S. Based on present funding in NYS and many other areas in the United States, diapers cannot be purchased with food stamps. Babies who remain too long in a soiled diaper are exposed to increased health risks and concerns. Diaper need creates additional stress and concern for the family as well. Most child care centers, even free and subsidized facilities, require parents to provide a day’s supply of disposable diapers; therefore, many parents cannot go to work or school if they cannot leave their babies at child care.
