MAM PROGRAMS & CLIENT SERVICES
MAM staff and volunteers provide assistance and intervention to help clients who are in crisis. Clients receive emotional support and encouragement, are actively engaged to reflect on the underlying causes of the crisis, and capacitated to work toward a stable financial future. MAM volunteers and case managers ensure that clients are linked to MAM programs and other appropriate community services. MAM programming is divided into three areas: Family Assistance Programs, Self-sufficiency Programs, and Programs for Children in School. Our goal is to assist Houston families so they can be stable and healthy, with the means to meet their basic needs and improve their economic security.
People in need are referred to MAM by Spring Branch ISD, 211 United Way Help Line, Turning Point, Santa Maria Hostel, apartment complexes, area churches, libraries, word of mouth and others.
MAM's programs are supported with proceeds from the MAM Resale Store, which is a distribution point for clothing and household goods for qualifying families, and generates more than one-third of MAM's non-capital revenue. The Resale Store is also a contact point through which MAM touches the whole community including customers, in-kind donors, current clients, and MAM families emerging into self-sufficiency.
MAM hosts 15 partner organizations on site to provide needed services as they are needed during the year. This video outlines the organizations which MAM, Memorial Assistance Ministries partners with.
