Mission: Meeting each need with dignity.
Upper Valley MEND is a human services umbrella organization dedicated to meeting the housing, hunger and healthcare needs of area residents and transients in the Upper Wenatchee Valley. Founded in 1988 as a food bank and thrift store, MEND has grown over the years and now has five distinct programs:
The Community Cupboard is a food bank, thrift store and emergency assistance program.
SHARE Community Land Trust is an affordable homeownership program that currently stewards 20 homes.
Cornerstone Community is a home for six adults with developmental disabilities.
The Upper Valley Free Clinic is a weekly free medical clinic and monthly free dental clinic housed at Cascade Medical Center.
Jubilee Global Gifts is a fair trade retail store in downtown Leavenworth, whose proceeds support the other four MEND programs.
