IHSP - DIAPER BANK OF NECT
The Diaper Bank began operation in 2011 providing diapers and wipes, on a monthly basis, to children living in Northeastern Connecticut.
Ashford, Canterbury, Chaplin, Eastford, Hampton, the Killingly-Brooklyn area, the Plainfield area, Pomfret, Putnam, Scotland, Thompson, and Woodstock.
OUR MISSION is to provide diapers, educational opportunities and other diapering resources for low and limited income families.
MOBILE DIAPER BANKS:
Our MDB’s serve families living in other parts of Windham County to reduce travel expenses for them. Diapers are also distributed through Day Kimball Hospital Nurturing Families (For full details, click HERE), CHR New Life Center and the Access Agency Emergency Shelter.

OUR KIT/GIFT PROGRAMS:
Families are assisted with potty training using our Potty Training Kits. We also provide First Time Parent Gift Baskets for At Risk Families with a newborn living in an unsupported living environment that need a little extra help getting started. Our Kit/Gift Program is supported financially by a grant from Jewett City Savings Bank.
In 2018 the Diaper Bank began an Early Literacy Resource Program called “Talk, Read, Sing for Change.” Books received are distributed through our Partner Agencies as well as our clients. They come from the National Diaper Bank Network in partnership with Too Small To Fail and the Penguin Books Young Readers Program. Books also come from Read To Grow whose commitment is to make books a part of every child’s life beginning at birth.
