Capital Diaper Bank's mission is to improve the physical, mental and economic well-being of children and families that are unhoused, living in shelters, transitional housing and in impoverished neighborhoods.

In FY 2017, Capital Diaper Bank:
  • Provided crisis support services to over 6,000 families, and assisted families with their immediate, crisis-caused needs for diapers, formula, food and other baby essentials following a crisis resulting from homelessness and other disasters;
  • 100% decrease in infections as a direct result to improved health practices;
  • 100% improved birth outcomes as a direct result to prenatal support and education through our Urban Baby Beginnings program  
  • 95% of parents reported a decreased in need for the Baby Pantry support after four to six months and,
  • 100% of children attending the child care were school ready.
  • 90% increase in employment for parents with children participating in the child care program.
The Capital Diaper Bank has the following goals for 2018: 
  1. Develop and implement a capital campaign to secure a site to house Capital Diaper Bank's programs using a collaborative partnership one-stop shop model.
  2. Through our Urban Baby Beginnings Program, expand transportation services for moms and babies to make appointments for critical medical care and essential services to decrease infant mortality rates.
  3. Increase our crisis preschool scholarship fund to ensure local families have what they need to move from subsidy dependency to self sufficiency through employment.
  4. Expand the CDB Ambassador program:   1) to help secure much needed diapers by serving as a drop off location in their neighborhood; and 2) to help spread the word of this important work by sharing CDB’s mission with local mom groups, list serves, schools, etc.
  5. Secure professional volunteers in the area of marketing, strategic planning and fund development to update current plans for 2018.
  6. Increase diaper distribution network in Norfolk, Virginia.


  1. With an ever fluctuating operating budget, our most pressing needs are to raise funds for Capital Diaper Bank programs: a) Crisis Nursery Scholarship Funds for parents who have found employment but have no child care; b) Emergency Transportation Services for Homeless Pregnant Moms to Obtain Critical Medical Care; and 3) a Safe House to ensure Health and Safety of Homeless Pregnant Moms and their Unborn Babies:      
Our History
Capital Center of Virginia (CCV) /dba/ Capital Diaper Bank  (CDB) began as a rescue plan for a previous church-based daycare program founded in 1994 that could no longer fulfill the needs of the children and families it served. As a result, CCV developed a center-based emergency family services program that serves over 6,700 homeless and working poor households in Virginia. The agency has provided children and their families with education, baby essentials and early intervention support services.
In response to the lack of public assistance for purchasing diapers and recognizing the subsequent stress placed on economically vulnerable families at critical times, Capital Center of Virginia expanded its diaper distribution to families of children outside of the crisis nursery in June of 2007.
Witnessing the profound health impact that the diaper distribution program had on children in need, Capital Center of Virginia decided to build on this success and expanded Capital Diaper Bank (CDB) as a separate and independent organization in 2011 in order to serve a broader base of children as it was not just the center's children who were in desperate need of diapers. 

In 2015, the organization formed Urban Baby Beginnings (UBB) to address the needs of the growing pregnant population served through the diaper bank as a result of an increase of infant mortality cases inthe center. In 2016, UBB received certification as a Baby Basics and Centering Pregnancy provider.

Throughout its history, Capital Center of Virginia /dba/ Capita Diaper Bank has provided an environment that respects the inherent dignity and strength of the children and their families, honors their differences and celebrates their ability to grow.
CEO Statement
Capital Diaper Bank's community-driven purpose and ideals will take us into 2018 with renewed strength to face our challenges head-on. We continue to believe all children and their families should be given a chance, no matter their background. Henceforth, Our Guiding Principle to “Improve the lives of those we serve,” has been and will continue to be our promise to families in need.
Board Chair Statement
As someone who has come to know and value the work done by this organization, I can tell you that time and time again, the children  and families have responded to CDB’s care, education and support. They have overcome many challenges to become self-reliant and self-sufficient and the staff continues to amaze me on a daily basis.
I urge everyone in our community to join me in supporting Capital Diaper Bank and its' programs.

CEO/ED/Board Comments
Capital Diaper Bank is truly appreciative of all the support it receives from the community. The organization receives a lot of volunteer hours and material donations.  We ask our donors during the new year to remember there at times we will need monetary donations to provide for families in crises: i.e. emergency child care for parents to secure employment, secure much needed medication for a child without insurance,  temporary housing for an infant and mom just released from the hospital with no where to go, a  pregnant mom living on the streets due to domestic violence and specialty formula for babies who can't be breastfeed  for families in a crisis.  REMEMBER "Every Baby Counts". You are their life line and we cannot do it without you.
