To carry out our mission, we assist families facing financial crisis to avoid homelessness, offer programs enabling long-term financial self-sufficiency, assure children an improved school experience, facilitate client access to other support networks, and provide value to our member congregations and the community.
As responsible stewards, we are grounded in faith, offering hope, preserving dignity, and open to all.
Each year, over 5,000 families arrive at MAM’s doors bearing the weight of a financial crisis so big that they can no longer handle it alone – from imminent eviction, family hunger, the need for urgent medical care, or loss of transportation to their job.
Volunteer and paid caseworkers help MAM clients address their immediate need with a variety of emergency services including rental and utility assistance, food pantry referrals and sack meals, transportation vouchers, access to medical services and much more. Next, caseworkers and volunteers take the time to work with clients to untangle a web of underlying issues that will continue to threaten families’ long-term stability, like a job loss, illness or disability, or lack of language skills for better employment, need for family counseling and so on.
