Mission Statement

Believing mobility and independence are basic human rights, Project MEND empowers individuals to become active members of their communities through the reuse of medical equipment. The refurbished medical equipment furnished by Project MEND provides freedom and mobility; improving not only a person’s quality of life, but also their dignity. A wheelchair or scooter could mean the difference between living a life of solitude and dependence to one of independence and increased mobility. Project MEND fills this critical need by refurbishing used medical equipment and providing it to those in need.

Leadership (GuideStar ExchangeThe GuideStar Exchange allows nonprofits to regularly update key information directly to GuideStar. It provides richer and broader information about their programs, impact, finances, people and more. March, 2014)

Ms. Cathy Valdez

Profile:

Extensive experience in project management; contract monitoring and oversight; program evaluation; customer services skills training and grant/proposal writing.  Over 22 years of experience in the non-profit sector working with economically disadvantaged and special populations.

Leadership Statement:

“We’re honored to assist veterans, seniors, children, and adults living with illness and disability,” said Project MEND Executive Director Cathy Valdez. “If someone needs medical equipment that is beyond their medical coverage and financial means, we want to help. The right piece of medical equipment can do so much to improve the quality of life for people with disabilities, but sometimes, because of gaps in funding and services, that equipment is kept out of the hands of those who need it most; people fall through the cracks. We at Project MEND see it as our job to lift them up, and help people improve their quality of life.”

Program: Durable Medical Equipment Reuse

Budget:
$1,081,500
Category:
People/Families with of People with Disabilities
Population Served:
Disabled, General or Disability Unspecified
Aging/Elderly/Senior Citizens
Children and Youth (infants - 19 years.)

Program Description:

Durable Medical Equipment (DME) services - We receive donated, previously owned medical equipment from the community and various businesses, then refurbish, repair and sanitize these items and distribute them to low-income persons with disabilities.  

Program Long-Term Success:

Some of our long-term successes center around being able to eventually move into another facility that will provide us with more warehouse space in order to store a larger amount of DME for distribution.  This will in turn allow us to serve many more clients.  Another long-term success is focused on increasing our funding resources so that we may expand our services to other areas of South Texas, such as, Laredo; Brownsville; Coastal Bend region; and Gulf Coast Region.  Ideally, we would want to establish satellite offices in each of these communities so that DME can be donated from these communities and used in these communities.

Program Short-Term Success:

Project MEND's impact on the disabled community is measured by: (1) the client's improvement in their mobility and independence; (2) improvement in thier ability to care for themselves or to actiely assist in their own care; and (3) the cost savings to the individual and the community.

Program Success Monitored by:

The success of our services is monitored by the use of our Client Survey.  This form is given to each client and records (1) how the client heard about Project MEND; (2) whether the medical equipment and/or fitted mobility services they received will improve their mobility, independence or self-sufficiency; and (3) whether they were satisfied with the services provided.   Additionally, monthly program reports are generated each month and provided to the City of San Antonio, Bexar County and the University of Texas at Austin - Center for Disability Studies.  These reports included planned versus actual budget expenditures; number of clients served; number of DME items distributed; value of DME donated and brought into our inventory; and the value of DME items distributed to the community.

Program Success Examples:

In 2006, we served 973 clients and distributed 1811 DME items; In 2007, we served 1243 clients and distributed 2236 DME items; In 2008, we served 1410 clients and distributed 3102 DME items.
