This charity provides critical assistance to faith based charities in the greater Houston area.
Before ACAM, there were casual communications among the Assistance Ministries in the Greater Houston area, but not formal ones. The Philanthropic community saw the potential which could be gained from a more formal connection, and that potential has truly been realized over and over. I personally think it is not only getting "the right people on the bus" as Jim Collins said in "Good to Great" - but it is adding that level of each ACAM member's personal "passion for mission" that makes ACAM truly great! They are all truly "Servant Leaders" to steal another great book's title. We are blessed to have ACAM!
So proud of the work Alliance of Community Assistance Ministries is doing for the Houston community.
Interfaith of The Woodlands is honored and proud to be a member of the ACAM Network and collaborate with some of the finest community assistance ministries in the greater Houston area. ACAM’s focus on strengthening programs, meeting community needs and organizational capacity building will enable Interfaith to continue to most effectively meet the growing demands of our undeserved neighbors in South Montgomery County. Through disaster relief, everyday crisis assistance, senior services and beyond, we are delighted to have the support, best practices and expertise of ACAM’s faith-based network to walk with us as we continue to lead our clients to a path of self-sufficiency.
ACAM is a great asset in the Houston community.ACAM provides services and is affiliated with other organizations to assist those in need to get the best help possible. ACAM is truly a blessing.
ACAM is an integral part of the Houston non-profit community, doing the less glamorous but absolutely essential work with little to no fanfare. I have been fortunate to volunteer for them on occasion, and have seen how much they do with far less resources than bigger, more traditional non-profits. I have enjoyed donating my time to ACAM and have witnessed the commitment and dedication of their employees. ACAM's central mission is extraordinarily served by them.
An amazing group of individuals.. it was a great pleasure working with them! They deserve 5+ stars!!
I am so greatful to ACAM for referring me to a ministry that helped me obtain resources during a time of need in my life. They acted with care and understanding in a professissional manner and I am so thankful!!
I was a community partner with ACAM on the Greater Houston Storm Recovery Network. With all the services they provide, they give a 100% to the task at had. It was a pleasure working with them.
I never knew about the wonderful work ACAM did in the Houston Community until recently. Although I currently do not need assistance, it feels good to know that there are organizations like this that are committed to helping the community in time of need. I have a family member who works with this organization and I have heard first hand about the caring, dedicated people who work endlessly to secure funding to help the community.
ACAM is a wonderful organization that provides many services. Basic needs are so important, especially in times of disaster or unfortunate circumstances that may arise unexpectedly. ACAM is an asset to the community and helps to assure that those in need will be provided for.
ACAM seems to have integrated itself with all facets of community assistance to ensure that those in need do not "slip through the cracks ", which can inadvertently happen when a myriad of entities are providing services. The role of ACAM is so needed to establish, protect and maintain the trust of vulnerable populations.
I worked with ACAM on the Long Term Recovery Committee for the Greater Houston Storm Recovery Network as Chair for the Donation Management Committee. The Alliance of Community Assistance Ministries served as our Fiduciary partner.
The Agency performed above any expectations we were expecting. They provided excellent reports and support to our committee on the use of the funds granted to us. The Nonprofit also wrote the grant for GHSRN.
Thanks to a awesome Nonprofit.
ACAM is an amazing organization that provides critical services to network organizations and the community. I have enjoyed the work I have accomplished through ACAM and I appreciate the consideration, commitment, and diligence of ACAM employees. ACAM's mission is seen through the generosity and diligence of the employees.
ACAM is a wonderful network of resources for the brand new or seasoned Executive Director. Just being able to meet together once a month, to share ideas, challenges, innovations, and NPO life really reminds me that I'm not in this alone and that the ministry we all serve is so much bigger than we can imagine. I am very grateful for the ACAM staff and my colleagues. As a new ED, they have kept my head above water!

ACAM provides great services to the non-profits in the Houston area. Among the services that i admire are great trainings to help my staff become better at the ways we serve our community and our clients.
ACAM is committed to helping non-profits and their leaders reach their full potential. They are professional and execute everything with excellence.
With a philanthropic flare and unlimited dedication, ACAM's mission has created an atmosphere of communal support. It has grown to the point in which sheer excellence has become common when describing this organization. Their continued support allows the ministries that they fund to be able to lessen suffering and neutralize various socio-economic issues that exist within certain communities. To trust in ACAM, is to invest in the future.
I worked with ACAM on their financial plan and i was impressed with the quality and detail of their books and records. ACAM really has it together in addition to being a wonderful resource for its members and the community.
Every one I spoke to was polite respectful and kind to me. I never felt like a burden or like a problem. Everyone seemed eager and tried their best to assist me. The referrals I got were great. I have limited transportation witch was a problem but they found several groups in my area to help me. I could not have asked for more. A young lady I spoke to named Karen was exceptionally patient and helpful. I would recommend any who needs help in Houston start here.
