Other Services

MEND remains a resource for people in Los Angeles who are in need of essential services such as rental assistance, clothing, diapers, hygiene items, etc. on a case-to-case basis. In 2021, we provided 42,338 diapers for 1,003 infants & toddlers; 843 board games for poor families to celebrate the holidays; and rental assistance & help with essentials for several families. And, finally, year after year, MEND sets aside time to restock backpacks for low-income children and celebrate a holiday meal with community members who are homeless and marginalized.
