Description


History Founded in April 1982 by seven local places of worship, West Houston Assistance Ministries (WHAM), formerly known as Westheimer Ecumenical Social Ministry (WESM), saw a need to provide for the needy that came through their church doors seeking assistance. WHAM has been and continues to be a door of hope for West Houston children, families, and homeless individuals in crisis. Offering assistance in meeting the essentials of daily living, WHAM matches client needs with available services and programs, including financial assistance, job search, food pantry, low cost resale items and special programs. Since the inception of WESM, a dedicated group of volunteers have devoted time, talent and treasures to support the WHAM mission. Individuals, businesses, organizations, churches and schools throughout West Houston provide the vital resources to as many as 16,000 clients each year. WHAM has developed a reputation as a caring, concerned and supportive operation for those in need.
