Review for MEND - Meet Each Need with Dignity, Pacoima, CA, USA
Why do I support MEND (Meet Each Need with Dignity)? Their name says it all. Every person they work with is treated with dignity and their needs are addressed. They began as a grass-roots effort to support those in their community who were facing adversity. This effort has grown and continues to serve the community and provide resources that allow their clients to grow, thrive, and—in turn—continue to give back. I first learned of MEND through service-learning courses at the University where I worked. Students who had the opportunity to serve at MEND described the experience as “transformative.” This is exactly what we hope a service-learning class will provide to students, allowing them to understand their place in the social network of community. I’m proud to contribute to their work.
