The Humble Area Assistance Ministries (HAAM) overall vision is to meet the immediate basic needs of those in the community. By doing this, HAAM envisions a community made up of individuals and families that are empowered and equipped with the resources needed to reach financial independence. This is done through various ways such as providing basic necessities and access to various resources. HAAM also partners with other community agencies and organizations to assist community members, and continuously seeks new resources and tools to serve those in need.

Strategies utilized by HAAM are as follows: (1) Create and sustain programs that provide targeted services to community members in need; (2) Offer resources to the community from one central distribution center (3) Continue to collaborate with local area agencies and organizations while continuing to research new collaboration and outreach opportunities; (4) Evaluate programs for efficiency and discover gaps in services and service delivery; (5) Respond to changing needs of the community; (6) Maintain and create relationships with funders, partners, and volunteers to ensure the development and viability of HAAM programs.

HAAM is an example of a community collaboration by providing needed resources in partnership with like-minded community agencies, donors, organizations, and volunteers. HAAM has continued to operate daily with the dedication of staff members and volunteers who work to meet the basic and ever-changing needs of those throughout the community. The amount of volunteers alone who provide donations and donate their time increase HAAM's ability to provide services of varying levels to members in the community. Additionally, community collaborations and on site outreach efforts enhance the possibility that various needs will be met at one central location. Through evaluation of services and surveys of the community population, HAAM has been able to create programs aimed at specific areas of need. Common external referrals made to clients are also monitored to determine what services the community is seeking, and program expansion and/or implementation is determined accordingly. Targeted services provided by HAAM increase the probability that clients receive services tailored to their specific needs.

HAAM tracks overall program success by employing program evaluation methods. HAAM measures program success by utilizing a self-sufficiency matrix at client's admission in a program and every three months. The number of program participants is also taken into account, and performance improvement reports (PIR) are analyzed. Additionally, increased collaboration and outreach leads to more clients services and resources, and a greater opportunity to serve more people. HAAM continues to progress and implement new tools and ideas for success in the hope of increasing program efficiency and discovering and responding to gaps in services.

The Humble Area Assistance Ministries (HAAM) overall vision is to meet the immediate basic needs of those in the community. During 2016, HAAM served an unduplicated count of 14,543 people from nearly 5,000 households. These 14,543 people made more than 80,000 re-quests for services (visits to HAAM) and received 547,818 units of service.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
