Who We Are:
We're a small congregation that has partnerships with other organizations. We work together because we care about the community experiencing challenges during the pandemic. This ministry is our way of demonstrating the love of God by providing the community with much-needed essential items.
We want to provide support because federal assistance doesn't cover diapers, and kids in daycare/schools require a supply of diapers. We saw that families had to choose between prioritizing the cost of food over diapers and decided to step up. Our goal is to provide low-income families with the necessary supplies so babies are healthy, kids can go to daycare, and parents can go to work.
We also provide menstrual products and adult diapers because these items are not only essential but also expensive. Menstrual products are a medical necessity that is unjustly taxed. We believe that the cost burdens low-income women and discriminates against them. Medicare does not cover adult diapers, and the cost of living in Los Angeles is expensive, along with the cost of prescription medication. This creates a great burden on seniors. Our assistance alleviates the stress and burden that come with costly essential items and helps keep people safe, and gives them peace of mind. By stepping up, we help create a positive path towards positive opportunities.
Whom We Serve:
This ministry helps parents/guardians who need baby diapers, women who need menstrual products, or seniors who need adult diapers. All are welcome here. Most of the families we serve are referred to us by social workers or other parents.
What We Do:
We distribute diapers directly to caregivers in need and other baby items available.
We also distribute menstrual products such as maxi pads, thin pads with wings, and tampons.
We serve our seniors with adult diapers
Where We're Located:
On the parking lot of 2208 S. Union Ave.
Look for a giant sign saying "Hope on Union, United University Church," and you may park in our lot when picking up items.
When We Distribute:
We distribute baby diapers, menstrual products, and adult diapers on the first Saturday of the month from 10 am to 11 am.

What are your expectations?
We expect you to bring your child, wear a mask and practice social distancing while in line.
If you do not have a mask, we will provide you with one. We will ask you for basic information (e.g., your name, diaper size) for reporting purposes during the sign-in process.
Do I need to bring my children? Do I need to bring anything else?
Please bring your baby to pick up diapers. Please bring your bag if possible.
What do you give out?
We distribute baby diapers, menstrual products, and adult diapers to seniors. Sometimes we give out baby hygiene products, wipes, or sanitizers. Occasionally we get other donated goods.
