“Bringing a pack of diapers to a home builds trust because it sends a message that I see you, I see your need.”
—Alyson Jacobson, Director of Home Visiting Services, Prince George’s Child Resource Center

To alleviate the health problems and economic concerns associated with diaper need, a Maryland-based home visiting program partnered with its local diaper bank. In this video produced for the National Home Visiting Resource Center, program staff across partner organizations share their experiences and how critical the partnership is to their work.
