How do I apply for diaper assistance?
Make an appointment or stop by the Center during our hours of operation to fill out an intake form. The Diaper Program Coordinator will speak with you about your needs and determine if you are eligible for our Diaper Program.
What should I bring with me to my appointment?
Since our Diaper Program eligibility guidelines require our clients to be enrolled in WIC, all you need to bring with you is your WIC card or folder to confirm eligibility. If you meet the income requirements for WIC but are unable to enroll in WIC, please contact us to discuss your situation.
Do I need to know anything about cloth diapering before I apply for the program?
Cloth diapers are a commitment and require special care, so it is recommended that you do some research before getting started. However if it is difficult to access information about cloth diapering, the Diaper Program Coordinator is happy to assist you in navigating the different types of diapers, cloth diaper care instructions, and determining which diapers are right for you and your child.
Do I need access to a washing machine in order to borrow cloth diapers?
It is highly recommended that you have regular access to a washing machine to clean your cloth diapers. You will probably have to wash your cloth diapers every 2-3 days. If you do not have regular access to a washing machine, let us know so we can talk through your options.
