About the Emergency Basic Needs Program
No matter the circumstances, the Emergency Basic Needs program at NAM stands ready to provide temporary assistance, assessments, and referrals so neighbors can get back on their feet.
The EBN program provides a variety of emergency help including food, clothing, prescriptions, gasoline vouchers, bus tokens, and financial help with rent or mortgage. Families can also qualify to receive school supplies, as well as holiday food and toys.
Thanks to grants from the Greater Houston COVID-19 Recovery Fund led by the United Way of Greater Houston and the Greater Houston Community Foundation, and the Harris County COVID-19 Relief Fund also led by the Greater Houston Community Foundation, NAM will help to meet the basic needs of those in crisis from the consequences of COVID-19. We will strive to provide the best, most strategic help to those effected by this pandemic. This fund is to provide food and financial assistance to help with the cost of rent, utilities, prescriptions or other basic needs. For many, a small amount of assistance can bridge the gap and lift them to their feet so they can stand once again.
Effective June 15, 2020- NAM will be giving out 100 numbers for Rental and Utilities Assistance screening appointments every Monday beginning at 6:00 AM. Arriving prior to 5:30 AM will NOT secure anyone a place in line.
*Please do not arrive at NAM prior to 6AM as you will not be able to access the property and will be turned away.
Once you receive a number you will be asked to leave the property and return at 8:00AM with your number and an ID for your screening appointment. Please come alone for your screening appointment as we are adhering to social distancing guidelines provided by the CDC, therefore we have no room for friends, children or other family members.
*Note this screening appointment does not guarantee that you will receive rental or utilities assistance but it does give you access to be screened for eligibility.
We will be accepting applications for other basic needs (food, and prescriptions) Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM.
Please check this website often for updates.
Please review the documents required for assistance, and make sure you bring your required documents to your appointment.
