Eyeglasses are scarce in developing nations because they cost too much for the average person - sometimes more than the average monthly income. In these areas there are few people qualified to diagnose eye problems and then provide the proper corrective lenses. In the last two years this ministry in Ethiopia, Uganda, Ensenada, Peru and downtown LA was able to reach over 2000 people who needed glasses. Future outreach opportunities include more mission trips to Downtown LA, Ensenada, Uganda and Ethiopia.
Los Angeles Mission
Serving the homeless living on the streets and on skid row. The mission offers emergency services including hot, nutritious meals, safe overnight shelter, showers, clean clothing, as well as professional medical and dental care. Volunteers provide food, clothing, administration and counseling services.
MEND (Meet Each Need with Dignity)
Our mission, as a volunteer-driven organization, is to provide services that meet the basic human needs of individuals who reside in the northeast San Fernando Valley. These services are provided in a manner that safeguards the dignity of all recipients. More than 5,000 hours are donated by volunteers from a broad range of backgrounds and income levels. Each person plays a vital role in meeting the mission of MEND, from the distribution of food and clothing, to assistance in job training and placement.
San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission
Volunteers bring essential services to every Rescue Mission Alliance outreach ministry. Each year, thousands of people offer their time, talent, and goodness of heart to outreach projects, to help make a difference in the lives of the hurting and the homeless. Opportunities are on-going, year-round, and constantly changing. At the San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission, there is a place for everyone with time to give.
Our facilities minister to those men who are caught up in the disease of addiction. Our treatment is three-fold: work therapy, counseling, and spiritual. We are rebuilding lives through developing discipline in all areas of their lives.

World Impact ministers to the whole person, while keeping its priority of evangelism and discipleship. In 1982, the Los Angeles Christian School was opened and Morning Star Ranch was acquired to disciple young men from the inner city. Work groups are needed to help us remodel and maintain our buildings. You can help if you have skills in plumbing, electrical, drywalling, painting, sewer repair, or roofing. We also accept help in the form of donations: new or used vehicles in reliable-good condition, and appliances in good working condition.
We believe in the power of presence. Kids’ lives are dramatically impacted when caring adults come alongside them, sharing God’s love with them. Because their leader believes in them, they begin to see that their lives have great worth, meaning and purpose.
