Wells Fargo Foundation supports ACAM through combined awards totaling $100,000
The Alliance of Community Assistance Ministries, Inc. (ACAM) would like to announce it has received a $25,000 grant from the Wells Fargo Foundation to support crisis communication training within the ACAM network.
ACAM is a network of partner ministries serving Houston and the surrounding areas. ACAM network partners are faith-based, grassroots organizations that help low-income families in crisis regain stability through provision of basic needs services such as food, rent and other types of assistance. They also respond to local emergencies such as disasters and food shortages. Each ministry works on the front lines with clients to help them achieve self-sufficiency. ACAM’s mission is to advance high impact collaboration, service excellence and organizational development among its network and other nonprofit organizations in the Greater Houston region.
In 2014, ACAM leveraged over $1.3 million to support organizational development of its network partners. This support resulted in over 230,000 clients being helped throughout Greater Houston. ACAM envisions a community that is supported by a network of faith based collaborative ministries that provide opportunities for families and individuals to meet and rise above their basic needs.
