About HAAM

Learn more about HAAM Social Services

Established on February 14, 1990, HAAM (HAAM Social Services) was founded with a clear mission: to respond to the articulated needs of local clergy representing sixteen congregations situated in northeast Harris and east Montgomery counties. The driving force behind this initiative was the desire to centralize community outreach efforts, thereby eliminating the duplication of social services.

The primary vision of HAAM was to create a collaborative framework where churches and schools no longer had to independently operate individual food pantries. Instead, the focus was on fostering a community-wide collaboration that would not only optimize resources but also strengthen outreach initiatives. By consolidating efforts, HAAM aimed to enhance support for individuals and families in crisis, ensuring a more effective and coordinated response to the diverse needs of the community. In essence, HAAM’s inception marked a pivotal step towards a unified approach to social services, aligning the efforts of various institutions for the betterment of our entire community.

  • Focus on the needs of the client and meet them where they are.
  • Serve clients with integrity and refrain from judgment of their individual situation.
  • Embrace, value, and champion diversity of all clients, volunteers and staff persons.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
