Memorial Assistance Ministries (MAM) Programs and Services fall into three categories.  Family Assistance Programs help those in financial crisis with rent, utility and medical assistance, clothing, transportation and access to benefits enrollment so they can stay in their homes and care for their families.  Family Education Programs help people improve their English, become more employable, balance their household budgets, provide mental health counseling and immigration legal assistance—all areas that help families build a better life. Programs for Children provide school uniforms and supplies, vision testing and eye glasses, prescriptions, immunizations, health screenings, dental care and doctor visits, and gifts for Christmas. The immigration legal services program provides representation on certain types of immigration cases at a low-cost.
