A.B.C. Diaper Bank is an initiative of the Alachua County Perinatal Mental Health Coalition, a 501(c)(3)nonprofit. We combine addressing the struggle of affording diapers with awareness of postpartum depression.
A.B.C. All Bottoms Covered Diaper Bank is an initiative of the Alachua County Perinatal Mental Health Coalition (ACPMHC) to address the correlation between diaper need (affecting 1 in 3 families) and heightened risk of these same families (3 times over!) for experiencing Postpartum Depression and related mental health conditions. Diaper need can lead to serious health problems for both babies and parents.
We will reach these families through community partnerships with organizations already providing direct services to those with unmet diaper need. Diapers, while a basic necessity for health of babies, is not augmented or provided for by any public service. The ABC Diaper Bank of the ACPMHC will serve this ongoing need through donations of diapers and funds raised. Awareness materials with information on the mental health of parents and support and other resources within the community will accompany each package of diapers.
