A Mission of Help and Hope
HAAM is providing essential social and community services to an inevitably growing number of people needing support during the current COVID-19 crisis. As the pandemic creates widespread impacts and change within every sector of our society and communities, organizations like HAAM need and want to remain on the front lines. Now more than ever, the services we provide must be available to our neighbors who were already living on the brink and struggling to make ends meet before the outbreak of the virus, as well as those who will find themselves seeking assistance for the very first time.
How We Serve
We offer a wide range of services to residents in the Northeast Houston Area including:
HAAM’s Self-sufficiency program builds upon the stabilization achieved through the Basic Needs program and offers services designed to help clients build life and employment skills. Services also support a client's desire to lessen and ultimately eliminate their dependence upon social service organizations. Through the self-sufficiency program clients are able to access the Employment Center, which helps unemployed and underemployed persons find work, improve job skills and seek advanced career opportunities.
HAAM provides Behavioral Health and Psychotherapy services for individuals, couples and families. Pregnancy services, including pregnancy test, education and assistance with benefits access.
At HAAM, caring and dedicated bilingual staff and volunteers provide help and hope to very low, low and moderate income individuals and families in need. While we are deeply committed to helping clients create a better life for themselves, the work of the staff and volunteers is grounded in the philosophy that financial independence is not attainable without first having essential needs met, such as food and shelter.
Through an array of social services, clients are assisted to address their most basic needs, the primary goal of which is to stabilize their environment and prepare them for the work necessary to increase and achieve self-sufficiency. Services provided benefit residents of northeast Harris and east Montgomery Counties by providing a safety net during periods of financial crisis related to factors such as underemployment, job loss, illness, age and disability.
HAAM provides Disaster Recovery Case Management and Behavioral Health services for long term disaster recovery.
In addition to community food fairs in Harris and Montgomery counties, HAAM conducts presentations in the community related to: Behavioral Health, including Mindfulness and Disaster Recovery preparedness. Additionally, HAAM provides Basic Needs services and Benefits Access at the St. John of the Cross Catholic Church satellite office and closely works with community partners to meet client’s needs.
