The Need

SNAP, WIC, Medicaid, and other publicly-funded assistance programs

do not cover diapers & period products

unless they are part of a doctor-prescribed treatment plan for a medical condition.

Basic Necessities is a dedicated hub for collection & distribution of these items to low-income people in the ArkLaTex.

We are the only nationally-recognized, certified diaper bank in our region.

​Basic Necessities is a member of the

National Diaper Bank Network (NDBN),


the Alliance for Period Supplies.

The nearest dedicated diaper bank is in McKinney, Texas near Dallas.
