REDYPER (formerly EarthBaby) is proud to bring you GIVING THANKS: a diaper drive supporting homeless pregnant women and babies in the Bay Area through The Homeless Prenatal Program's Jelani House.

WHEN: November- December 5th

HOW: Virtually at www.earth-baby.com/diaperdrive, select GIVING THANKS at https://connect.clickandpledge.com/w/Form/b69d56cc-de26-4098-94fc-4dadd6af22e2 

WHY: Give the gift of diapers this holiday season to families in need! Our goal is to distribute over 200 packs of diapers & wipes to the Jelani House. We are asking you, our Bay Area community, to make a contribution to either help purchase the items that will be donated or to donate unopened packs of diapers and wipes at these upcoming events. The need for diapers has more than doubled since the covid crisis. Homeless families, under-housed families and families at risk of homelessness have become particularly vulnerable during the worldwide Covid crisis for a variety of reasons. HPP is responsible for distributing over 250,000 diapers per year.

WHERE: Give Virtually or at these upcoming events

Walnut Creek Farmers Market: Locust St. @ Cole Ave. Sunday, November 14th from 9am-1pm.

It’s Yoga Kids Classes: Palace of Fine Arts, Saturday, November 20th from 10am-12pm.

Homeless Prenatal Program seeks to break the cycle of family homelessness and poverty by addressing an unmet public health need – prenatal care for women who are pregnant and homeless. HPP is a nationally-recognized family resource center in San Francisco that empowers homeless and low-income families, particularly mothers motivated by pregnancy and parenthood, to find within themselves the strength and confidence they need to transform their lives. A small passionate organization, founded by Martha Ryan in 1989, went from serving 72 women the first year to 30 years later, helping 3,500 families in the Bay Area.

Today, they have evolved into a comprehensive Family Resource Center, providing a full-range of services to young families and homeless women, with the belief that pregnancy is often a window of opportunity for families to work toward health, stability, and self-sufficiency. 

After a multi-year planning process, The Jelani House, located in the Bayview District, is now finally open. Jelani House is a transitional housing shelter for pregnant women and postpartum women, providing 24-hour support, as well as assistance with permanent housing.
