At AZCEND, we change lives by nourishing minds and bodies to create a connected, thriving community. AZCEND meets the basic human needs, including emergency food and clothing, for people in crisis in Chandler and works to empower individuals and families by providing programs that develop skills needed for self-sufficiency and long-term change.
AZCEND is built on 5 core values
Integrity: We perform all of our daily duties with utmost integrity, knowing that the communities we serve trust us to assist their most vulnerable residents
Compassion: Compassion for our community and the people we serve is what drives everything we do, knowing that when one person reaches out to help another, both are lifted up in the process
Hope: Our goal is not simply to meet the physical needs of those we serve but to empower others with an unwavering hope that each step is a step forward, and tomorrow will be better than today.
Excellence: In order to maximize the resources that have been put in our care, each of us strives for excellence in our individual and collective activities, continually looking for ways to do more and do better.
Respect: Finally, AZCEND is built on a culture of respect. Respect for our mission, respect for each other, respect for the people we serve, and respect for the resources provided to support our mission each day.
