Our Care Ministry provides one-on-one assistance to meet the critical short-term financial and personal needs of our clients.



Voucher ​Program

Financial  ​Assistance

It is part of our mission to make sure that no one leaves here hungry so we have food available from our Food Pantry. 

If you have a need for clothing there will be FREE distribution of clothing one Saturday per month at the WHAM Food Fair (see Event Calendar for dates).  Everyone is welcome regardless of zip code, while supplies last.
For those in need, we provide financial aid to help with the cost of rent, mortgage, or utilities.  

Persons seeking assistance must make an appointment. Please call us at 713-977-9942 weekdays to schedule your next day appointment. The number of appointments we can schedule per day is limited.

Seasonal Programs

Local agencies offer information services to clients, including health care information, benefits enrollment, and mental health care assistance. 
Seasonal programs include a ​Back-to- School Program, which distributes school supplies to students Pre-K through 12th grade and Easter Baskets donated from a coalition church. Our Holiday Meals Program provides Thanksgiving and Christmas meal ingredients and grocery gift cards to those in need.

WHAM has been blessed with disaster relief resources enabling us to greatly increase the financial assistance and the number of families we can help. As a result, we are suspending our Adopt A Family program this year so we can focus primarily on flood assistance.

​We are continuing our yearly Holiday Meals, as well as our Christmas toy distribution program (client parents are invited to "shop" from donated toys for young children and receive $20 gift cards for older children). We will be accepting toy donations for all ages under 10 years and $20 gift cards for ages 10-18 (recipients must be in school).
