At AZCEND, we change lives by nourishing minds and bodies to create a connected, thriving community
People in our community are isolated, hungry, and living on the streets. We provide help and hope to individuals and families who are experiencing crisis.
AZCEND strengthens individuals, families, and communities through each of our programs: Food Bank, Family Resource Center, Rent and Utility Assistance Program, Homeless Services Program, and Senior Programs along with Meals on Wheels. We want to do more than simply help people maintain their current situation-we want to provide people with the tools they need to change their lives for the better. Learn more at WWW.AZCEND.org
