Your investment in pencils and crayons can pave the way for the next generation in our community!
Each year Northwest Assistance Ministries hosts a Back to School Drive to purchase school supplies for local children in need from kindergarten through 12th grade. Last year, over 2,000 students in the Spring, Klein, Aldine and Cy-Fair school districts received the supplies they needed to start the school year from NAM.
When children have the tools they need to learn, it opens up a realm of opportunities for their futures, and yours.
Northwest Assistance Ministries (NAM) is extremely grateful for all the contributions made to the Relief for Neighbors efforts. To date, NAM has assisted more than 10,000 individuals with more than $1.1 million in Relief Funds from generous neighbors like you. Your donations have helped supply families impacted by Hurricane Harvey with:
- Hygiene Products
- Rent/Mortgage Assistance
- Utility Bills
- Home Repairs
- Car Repair/Replacement
- Business Equipment
- Case Management Services
This is in addition to the abundance of in-kind donations of food, clothing, and other household goods received.
Thank you so very much for your support!
NAM is also the proud recipient of grant funding from a variety of businesses, foundations, the United Way and the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund (HHRF). The grants from the HHRF, established by Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner and Harris County Judge Ed Emmett and managed by the Greater Houston Community Foundation (GHCF), supply recipients with funds to be used to provide programs and/or services to those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
