Covered With Love
Diaper Bank

Our Board

Our Board members and Advisors help promote the mission and vision of the Covered With Love Diaper Bank. Without these volunteers, we would not be able to reach our goals and help families in crisis in our community.

We encourage you to review the background of each board member. Their desire to help along with their commitment to the community gives you a small sense of their dedication.

If you would like to join our organization, please contact us. There are many opportunities to serve.

Angie Francis


Angie has worked in missions and ministry since 2009.  She worked with homeless families for four years prior to starting Covered With Love.

It was during those four years that she gained first hand experience with the endless challenge of finding the resources that were needed each day for those in crisis.  She saw first hand how the cycle and resulting anxiety continued.

This is when the realization occurred of the desperate gap within our community.  The obvious lack within child poverty and direction from the Lord is what led her to start Covered With Love. Angie loves children and it’s her heart’s desire that all babies have clean, dry diapers.

Maria graduated with majors in Sociology and Spanish, served as a U.S. Navy reservist, and now wants to continue serving the community in a meaningful way.  

In her role with Western Indiana Community Action Agency, Maria has seen the important work that Covered With Love provides.  She has seen that diapers may seem like an easily attainable item, however, for those that struggle, diapers are many times a major expense.  Once told that Covered With Love is a “godsend”, she looks forward to helping those in need and supporting the community.
