We are honored to receive a timely and generous grant from the S. Mark Taper Foundation recently. As the need for MEND’s services continues to grow each week, the S. Mark Taper Foundation’s support ensures that our doors remain open to vulnerable and hurting people during difficult times. Mothers like Becca should not have to worry about not having enough food in her fridge to feed her 4 children. And unhoused individuals like Derek and Cynthia can continue to receive food, clothing, help, and referrals at MEND through First Step services. This valuable grant allows us to do this and more, including supporting those willing and ready to achieve lifelong financial and wellness stability.
