MEND - Volunteer Services VISTA
MEND - Meet Each Need with Dignity mission is to meet immediate needs of individuals and families and increase their access to opportunities that strengthen their capacity to thrive. To this end, we offer a range of comprehensive services delivered with dignity and respect by MEND's exceptionally dedicated staff and “army” of volunteers. For 47 years, MEND has opened its doors to the most vulnerable members of our community and over the years we have become one of the most comprehensive and empowering poverty relief agencies in Los Angeles County. Started in a San Fernando Valley garage in 1971, MEND is an anchor institution with the largest food bank in the Valley, medical, dental and vision clinics, clothing, homeless care services, as well as support and care through case management services. As the Volunteer Services VISTA, you will build on MEND’s legacy and establish a recruitment program to bring in 50 volunteers each year to support the volunteer needs under the Foodbank, Marketing, and Development programs at MEND.
