Meet Katherine, she came to the United States about 4 years ago from Managua, Nicaragua. With credits in general medicine, she wanted to continue her education and find employment. Therefore, she enrolled in our EKG Interpretation Pre-Hire Training Program with Employment Services.

“MAM provided me with the necessary tools to receive training in EKG. I had access to a private computer lab, accessible schedule and prevention measures were taken for Covid-19. This program gave me the opportunity to acquire new knowledge and opened the door for me to get a job as a Junior EKG Tech with Preventice Solutions. I am very grateful to the entire MAM team, for giving me their support and taking me by the hand to success.” -Katherine

Are you open to receive drop off donations?
Donating one order at a time 😂💕
Stopped by the MAM Store at Gessner just 15 mins ago. I walked in the door and immediately was told that I would not enter without wearing a mask. I get it. It's your store so you make your rules. The Hypocrisy of it was the security guard that told me this had her mask hanging under her chin and the guy behind the register was not wearing one at all. Another example of do as I say, not as I do. I'm know you guys do alot for the community, but I will not be back with my donations or my money. My rant is over, have a nice day.
Please let us know when we can bring in clothing and houseware donations. I was thinking maybe we could label the bags or boxes with a date and then if you left it unopened for 5-7 days a person could feel comfortable opening them? (If the virus can live 3 days on items ?) just a suggestion I know your doing all you can, I just know a lot of people who’ve got donations to give.
During your extra time at home... Census field teams are on hold due to COVID-19 but the Census count needs to continue. An accurate Census count is critical for Houston/Harris County. Complete the Census online or phone while you practice social distancing #ACO3186
Hi, we'd like to support MAM with buying s gift card but had done questions. Can you please message me? Thanks for all you do!
I love your Facebook live sales. It is a wonderful way to help your community and get great products. I like the focused sales the best. For example the all clothing sale. I would love to also see perhaps a different kind of sale. Maybe one focused on family. You could sell bundles of books that parents can read to the children or the children can read to the parent. Puzzles for the whole family to do. Also games but the whole family can play together. Perhaps even put small appliances such as ice cream makers and bread makers. Anything a family could do together so like arts and crafts. Just some ideas. Keep up the great work and I look forward to the next Facebook live sale.  
Can you tell me the hours for taxes preparation center?
Does this place help with tax preparation, if so what days and times?
Did you download the Learning Upgrade or Cell-Ed app as part of the the XPRIZE communities competition? If so, join us for a conversation about the app, and get a $15 Valero gift card.
