Kelley E. C. Massengale

Kelley E. C. Massengale, PhD, MPH, is the Director of Research & Evaluation at the Diaper Bank of North Carolina. Her research interests are in advocacy, access to basic needs, social justice, issues of community concern, and working with hard-to-reach populations.

She led the team that published the first two peer-reviewed papers about outcomes experienced by diaper bank recipients. Kelley is currently evaluating the Diaper Bank of North Carolina’s mobile diaper pantry, created to reach military families in Eastern NC, and a program that distributes menstrual hygiene products to local public school students so that girls in the community are not missing school because they do not have access to hygiene products when they need them.
