NAM RECEIVES GRANT FUNDING FOR COVID-19 RESPONSE

HOUSTON, TX — Northwest Assistance Ministries has been recognized as a recipient of the Greater Houston COVID-19 Recovery Fund.

“We are honored to be a recipient of this grant which will allow NAM to serve hundreds of families in need,” said President & CEO, Les Cave.

The COVID-19 pandemic has created dire economic hardships for many of our community’s most vulnerable families and individuals. The money NAM receives from the Recovery Fund will be used to help with immediate basic needs and emergency financial assistance.
