The David Mond Leadership Group for Pacific House is an organization that encourages area youth to take a leadership role in helping the homeless. Established in 2009 by Dr. Sandi Mond, in memory of her husband and longtime Pacific House volunteer David Mond, the Leadership Group continues David’s legacy of service and his joy of cooking. Coordinated by Dr. Mond, the group of students, which has grown from a dozen founding members to nearly twenty  students, have already prepared and served several meals; each time earning rave reviews from the men at Pacific House. In addition to their meal duties, the Leadership Group is developing plans for more outreach initiatives to benefit the Pacific House community. The group is looking for new students to join them in their efforts to help the homeless. If you are interested in taking an active role and would like to join the group, contact Director of Development Andrew Barer ( who will direct your inquiry to the group.
