MAM was created by the local faith community in 1983 to provide basic needs to northwest Houston families. Its programming is viewed as giving a “hand up” rather than a “hand out,” and its philosophy of service is one of personalized support, believing that every client is capable, creative, and whole. Clients enter MAM’s doors seeking a particular service and are then referred and encouraged to look into additional programs that may help them continue to improve their lives. In 2016, 6,635 families were impacted by programs and services they received at MAM.
