Disaster Relief: COVID-19

Dealing with a world-wide crisis of unknown duration may be one of the most difficult things most of us will ever deal with in our lifetime.  For families with no safety net, the crisis may be unbearable. 

For nearly 40 years, families have been turning to MAM for help during times of crisis, including hurricanes, floods, fires, loss of jobs, medical emergencies, etc.  It may take a few days or weeks before people begin to contact us, but when they arrive in the coming weeks and months, we will provide the care they need.

 

MAM deals with some of the most vulnerable families in north and west Houston. Families living in poverty – living paycheck to paycheck.  Many are working in the service industry or working day to day because they don’t have the proper work documentation.  Will they have money to pay the rent, buy food and keep their homes clean and safe?

“We are people of faith and community.  We will continue to be prudent, but not fearful, trusting that together we will provide the love and support our neighbors will need in the coming days and months,” said Sonja Gee, MAM President & CEO.

 
What kind of help is available?

MAM is now able to offer the following services remotely:

  • Basic Needs Assistance

We are also working to develop the capacity to offer remote ESL and Citizenship classes and online sales for the Resale Store.

If you have been affected, visit our Programs & Services page for contact information.
