Another way to find free baby supplies for low income families is via the Nextdoor app.
Nextdoor is similar to Facebook, although, you can only see users near your zip code. For instance if you live in the Third Ward area you will only see users near the 77004 zip code.
I’ve had the Nextdoor app for about 2 years and I’ve seen lots of people request baby items and others in the community step up to help them.
What I would suggest to you is to simply create a post on the Nextdoor app with your request for diapers and see if someone is able to help you.
I’ve also seen neighbors provide updates of which local churches are helping with basic needs, therefore this is another way for you to find free diapers and formula.
Raising children is expensive, therefore if you are eligible should definitely consider visiting these Houston diaper banks.
Remember to contact agencies like Houston Diaper Assistance Program, Diaper Foundation, and Houston Diaper Bank first because they specialize in supplying free diapers. If one of these locations is convenient for you then you can look to some of the secondary diaper banks found on the map above.
Lastly, if you are in a position to help other families each of the agencies above are places that will accept diaper donations in Houston.
