Sweet Cheeks Diaper Bank works exclusively with Greater Cincinnati social service agencies and hospitals to provide diapers to families in need. *For a variety of reasons, we cannot distribute diapers directly to individuals.* Agencies can apply to become a partner agency by filling out the application here. We currently have a wait list of agencies, but we encourage you to apply to get a spot on the list. We look forward to working together to end diaper need in our community!
