Mission Statement

With dignity and respect, MEND’s mission is to meet immediate needs of individuals and families and increase their access to opportunities that strengthen their capacity to thrive

They have great resources, and the students and teachers are all very supportive.

Amazing organization. They truly care for the community and their staff is great! I volunteered with them as a tutor a couple years ago and still hold a warm spot in my heart for them. Truly a life changing experience. Highly recommend getting involved and volunteering with them.

Well ran organization, they will not waste your time! Also because of the vast array of services they offer there are a wide range of volunteer opportunities, i.e. medical/dental, fundraising, food pantry, clothing store, working with youth, and more.
