Hope & Care

Hope & Care

MEND’s Hope and Care team provides COVID-19 resources, education and support by engaging community members through training door-to-door education and community canvassing.  The team is made up of individuals from the community who are familiar with the neighborhoods that we cover, as wells as the devastating impact of COVID-19 on vulnerable families and individuals. Our team builds relationships by meeting  people where they are, be it at home or work and shares resources on COVID-19 prevention, symptoms, testing and treatment sites. The Hope and Care team also helps mitigate and address other COVID impacts including food-insecurity and mental and physical health needs, by offering information on local resources. 

Finally, the Hope and Care team provides additional support to households in quarantine or isolation due to COVID-19 in the form of home delivery of essential items such as food, clothing and sanitation supplies. 

Our team serves the following areas:

  • Arleta 
  • La Tuna Canyon 
  • Mission Hills 
  • North Hills 
  • North Sherman Oaks
  • Pacoima
  • Panorama City
  • San Fernando
