What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Organized February 14, 1990, HAAM was created to address the needs expressed by local clergy representing sixteen congregations within northeast Harris and East Montgomery Counties to centralize community outreach efforts and avoid duplication of social services. The idea was that churches and schools would no longer need to operate individual food pantries, and that outreach efforts on behalf of individuals and families in crisis would be strengthened as a result of this community-wide collaboration. The agency now provides comprehensive social services to residents of 14 zip codes and represents more than 30 covenant organizations.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Basic Needs

The Basic Needs program includes assistance with
food, clothing, housing, utilities, transportation and prescriptions for low-income families
in crisis with the goal of stabilizing the family so that it can pursue
proactive programs that will lead to resiliency. Additionally, in order to
supplement and make our Basic Needs Program even more robust for our clients,
HAAM offers a comprehensive, holistic approach by assessing each client and
identifying the root causes for the current crisis. By using this method, we
are able to connect the client to our wraparound services such as education,
improved employment or support services to build their stability and
resiliency. Finally, all clients are assessed regularly using a
self-sufficiency matrix that helps track progress and barriers.

Education
Program services include adult basic education such as literacy and life skills
classes, ESL classes and Financial Literacy. In addition – through a
partnership with Lone Star College – HAAM provides tuition assistance and
assistance with books and supplies for clients to complete certification
programs (e.g. Certified Nursing Assistant, Phlebotomy, Culinary Arts and
Dental Assistant training programs).

Adults

In addition to offering Basic Needs, Senior Services has a range of programming for older adults including Meals on Wheels and in-home assessments of seniors seeking meal delivery; case management services that provide comprehensive assessment on activities of daily living, social inclusion, geriatric depression scale and coordination of community resources and referrals; and activities to increase socialization, decrease isolation and provide food assistance at the Bordersville Senior Center.

Supportive
Services include wrap around services that promote and foster a continuum of
care. The goal is to provide a variety of services that go beyond basic needs,
such as wellness through medical screenings, children’s vaccinations,
increasing knowledge on nutrition, helping families prepare for back to school
and providing a joyful holiday season with toys and holiday baskets.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people
Families

HAAM operates a full service
Job Center which helps unemployed and underemployed persons find work, improve
job skills and seek advanced career opportunities through one on-one assistance
with trained volunteers who offer practical suggestions to employment problems,
including resume-building, interview coaching and job search assistance. HAAM
also hosts on-site job fairs and hiring events and prepares clients to meet
local employers who frequently look to HAAM for professional and dependable job
candidates. The primary goal of HAAM’s Employment program is to
assist clients who are ready to improve life skills and leave the crisis of poverty
to become self-sufficient. Toward that end, clients who secure employment may
receive case management to assist with job retention and financial management.

The program focuses on providing Case Management in conjunction with Mental Health Counseling services and financial assistance when available. This strength-based approach is designed to help individuals and families impacted by Hurricane Harvey and Tropical Storm Imelda
obtain stability. The Case Manager and Behavioral Health Counselor emphasize individual and family strengths, viewing them as resourceful and resilient in the face of adversity. The Case Manager and Behavioral Health Counselor also utilize internal HAAM resources, such as Employment and Education services and other wraparound Supportive services.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

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.
