West Houston Assistance Ministries - WHAM

West Houston Assistance Ministries - WHAM Providing Services, Living Essentials, and Support to the Homeless and Families in Crisis plus a Resale Store In 1982 West Houston Assistance Ministries, Inc.
(31)

(WHAM), formerly known as Westheimer Ecumenical Social Ministry, formed the first "door of hope" for needy children, families, and homeless individuals in West Houston. Our goal has always been to assist those during emergency situations, so that they can help themselves get through the rough times. WHAM is a human services organization that exists through a coalition of places of worship. Our service region includes residents in Zip Codes 77042, 77077, 77057, 77063 and 77082. WHAM meets the essentials of living, which include: food, clothing, household items, financial aid, transportation and job search assistance. Members of the WHAM Coalition provide financial support, volunteer services and donations of food and clothing. An important source of funds also is generated through the proceeds from sales in our Second Blessing Store, a store that offers new and gently used clothing, furniture, household goods, and other quality merchandise. In 2018, contributions enabled the assistance of more than 43,000 clients needing food, employment, training, financial assistance, and clothing. They also helped more than 2550 homeless individuals, while feeding 39,003 of Houston's hungry. The organization is governed by a Board of Directors and managed by a CEO. A small but talented staff reports to the CEO. By and large the workforce consists of volunteers who donate their time and effort to make the operations of WHAM possible.

We mourn the passing of Jewish icon and trailblazer, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. As she died on #RoshHashanah, it is relevant to share how, according to Jewish tradition, a person who dies between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, is a tzaddik, a person of great righteousness because God allowed them to live a full year since the last holiday.
