For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.
Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.
Matthew 25:35-36,40

WEST HOUSTON ASSISTANCE MINISTRIES provides services through the ministries described below. All services are provided at our facility on Rogerdale at Meadowglen. Each ministry is designed to work in concert to provide those services that best align with the overall goals of the organization. Where services are not directly available, we attempt to initiate aid through referral to other organizations that do provide them.

CARE Ministry
The CARE Ministry provides direct support to those in need. Volunteer "interviewers" work with "clients" in crisis to determine immediate and long-term needs. Aid often is in the form of rent and utility payments and may also include food and items (such as clothing) donated to the Second Blessing Store.

Job Search
The Job Search Ministry provides assistance in resume writing, finding positions through bulletin boards and direct assistance in job search. Computers with Internet access are available to post resumes and search for job openings.

Food Pantry
The Food Pantry provides food to needy clients of the Care Ministry. The Food Pantry also supports special programs, such as Holiday dinners. The food comes from local food stores, food drives by organizations in the community and from individuals.

Second Blessing
Store Second Blessing Store depends chiefly on donations of gently-used items (tax deductible) as provided by individuals, businesses and organizations. Store revenues are used to support our programs and operations.

Educational Programs
ESL (English as a Second Language) classes introduce residents to a basic understanding of American culture and language. More than learning the English language, students are provided a background in banking, credit and business as it pertains to the local culture.

Holiday / Special Programs
Annually, the Ministry supports Christmas and Thanksgiving meal programs, and a Back-To-School supplies program. The Christmas program provides gifts and toys to children in need, while the Thanksgiving program provides special food to families and the homeless. Our Back-To-School program distributes gently used uniforms and new school supplies to students from Pre-K thru highschool.
