This organization provides organization, evaluation, development, program development and financial grants to it's members who are providers of homeless prevention services. ACAM board members from the member organizations provide a reliable gauge for effective board policy.

I am a current board member and former Executive that ran a member agency for eight years. The resources and relationships made available to member agencies to build strong infrastructure, best practices, and collaborative partnerships is an invaluable gift to the community and the families that the member agencies serve. ACAM's staff leadership draw from the best non-profit leaders in the community to create a cohesive response to the needs for leadership development, effective and efficient use of human and technological resources, and building a more responsive and connected response to ongoing community need and community-wide disasters such as hurricanes and floods. I am now with an agency that is different in mission and objectives and I could have, if desired, walked away when I moved on. Because of the difference ACAM makes throughout the Houston-Galveston area I determined to make a commitment to continue serving on the Board of ACAM and lending my support to their mission and purpose.

ACAM has been instrumental in the growth and development of services within the faith-based community that is providing basic needs to the Greater Houston area. Their deliberate approach to capacity building has not only impacted staff leadership within their non-profit membership, but has strengthened board and community involvement as well. I have been a part of this organization as an Executive Director of one of its members, since its inception under the ZCAM project over 7 years ago. I have seen member organizations expand infrastructure, develop programs, create community collaborations, increase revenue, improve efficiency and effectiveness, and increaes staff knowlwedge - all leading to an overall improve of programs and services. ACAM also evaluates their member's progress, and measures impact through its detailed evaluation process which in turn provide a road map for other funders, and future duplication of the program's model in other communities. I am now assisting by leading internal committees and am a member of the Board of Director's representing the Executive Director membership.

ACAM has taken on an essential but under-appreciatd task of being an intermediary between organizations that have taken on the task of being part of the social safety net for the Houston-Galveston area and a very sympathetic and supportive public that nevertheless does not fully appreciate how much more effective a charitable organization can be when it is financially strong, competently led and networked with other like-minded members. ACAM advocates for these organizations, facilitates their communication, raises capacity-building funds for them and, to use an overused but nontheless true cliche, has the backs of Houston area community assistance ministries. I am priviledged and proud to be part of its story.

ACAM helps area ministries fulfill their mission, by bringing like organizations together. The member agencies have benefited through co-learning opportunities and sharing strengths and weaknesses so they can grow and thrive. These organizations are scattered throughout greater Houston and are the first place people go in time of need or in times of disaster. ACAM agencies provide basic needs, from food to clothing, and more. They are the first place families or individuals turn in times of disasters, such as hurricanes, floods or fire. Because of ACAM, the executive directors now share best practices; staff has become more professional without losing the humanity and passion that drives their work; facilities and infrastructure are improved so that those accessing services feel welcomed. Because of ACAM agencies, the homeless have found shelter; the hungry can feed themselves and their children; others have found meaningful work, and the story goes on.
