Rachel Alston: How Diaper Need Impacts Families & Communities

Diapers. Have you ever stopped to really think about them? Not about their intended purpose per se, but about the role they play in people's lives? Did you know that lack of access to diapers can impact a person's ability to graduate high school, pay for medications, or even lead to the loss of employment?
