The United Hands Multi-Purpose Center non-profit was established to inspire hope and assure that the basic needs are met for low-income families in the City of Compton and surrounding areas. United Hands was established in 2017 by community activist Martha Barajas after serving several years as a volunteer working a variety of community service projects to help the under-served Compton residents. Mrs. Barajas with her organized team of concerned citizens gained a local reputation across the years for hosting numerous free food and clothing and holiday giveaways that resulted in thousands of residents in need receiving help and support.
