The Hoosier Diaper Program will be closed Monday, August 8, and we’ll be back for diaper pickup on Monday, August 15. If you need diapers in the meantime, you can head to Bloomington Housing Authority’s Crestmont Community Center at 1002 N Summit during their computer lab and pantry hours. These hours are Tuesdays, 11:30 am – 3:30 pm, and Thursdays, 10:00 am – 1:00 pm, and 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm. Thanks for your patience while we are away from the center!

How do I pick up my diapers?
All diaper pick-ups will now occur on Mondays between 12pm and 5 pm EST. To schedule your pick-up, fill out either of the intake forms above. On the scheduled day of your pick-up, please follow these steps to reduce the risk of infection between clients and staff:
- When you arrive at 1014 S Walnut Street in Bloomington, please come to the back parking lot behind the building. Ring the video doorbell (at the bottom of the steps) to let us know you’re here. We will ask you through the doorbell who you’re picking up supplies for. Just let us know the adult’s name on the order, and we’ll bring your supplies right out to the bottom of the stairs for you.
- Please wait in your vehicle or stay in the parking lot, off the back porch and stairs, while we place your items outside our back door. Wait until our staff have gone back inside the building before approaching the back porch and stairs to collect your supplies.
- Please do not try to enter the Center. We appreciate your help keeping our community healthy and safe!
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, we will be 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.
