With dignity and respect, powered by volunteers,
MEND’s mission is to break the bonds of poverty
by providing basic human needs and a pathway to self-reliance.
MEND – Meet Each Need with Dignity – is one of the most comprehensive and empowering poverty relief agencies in Los Angeles County, serving in 2015 an average of 37,000 individuals each month with a full range of services designed to meet basic needs and move recipients on to self-reliance.
Named the 2012 California Nonprofit of the Year by the Governor’s Office, MEND has strategically worked to expand its volunteer workforce to almost 5000 individuals to better meet the growing number of client applications. On-going collaborations are part of this leveraged manpower, with more than 360 universities and colleges, businesses, nonprofit and government agencies, and community groups regularly working in MEND departments. Approximately 32 professional employees support these volunteers, who gave the equivalent hours of almost 110 full-time employees in 2015.
MEND’s exceptional management, emphasizing high quality and innovative service delivery, earned it the 2012 California Nonprofit of the Year award, and enabled a 400% growth in critical departments during the Great Recession.
