Alliance of Community Assistance Ministries (ACAM)
Building the capacity of Houston's
social service safety net
Rockwell Fund is proud to partner with the Alliance of Community
Assistance Ministries, Inc. (ACAM), a member services organization
committed to supporting excellence in social services and
organizational development for Community Assistance Ministries
(CAMs) in the Greater Houston area. CAMs are there for people when
they have nowhere else to turn for basic needs, and ACAM enables
CAMs to have even greater impact.
Established as a pilot project in 2004 by a collaboration of local
nonprofits led by Rockwell Fund, the ACAM concept was a response to
research findings indicating capacity building activities could
help CAMs be more effective and accomplish more in their
communities. Read more (PDF).
The network of community assistance
ministries serve nearly 300,000 Houstonians a year.
