CAM is a 36 year old nonprofit serving 50,000 people annually by providing immediate assistance and encouragement to people in crisis. CAM is often a first stop along the social service continuum and acts much like a triage for clients stabilizing them so that they can avoid further crisis or getting them connected to long term supports. CAM provides food (32,000 receive food annually from CAM), clothing, hygiene items, prescription medication assistance, and financial assistance for ID recovery/birth certificates, help with rent and utilities, transportation to medical appointments or work as well as other miscellaneous support. Our clients are often mentally ill, physically ill, working poor families, veterans, senior citizens, homeless and 13,000 are children; they are from all over San Antonio. CAM may be the only place that will help and often is the only place that can provide the immediate assistance that is often so badly needed. CAM does this with a team of 200 volunteers, donations, financial support from churches, businesses and individuals and with no government support.
Mission: To share the love of Christ by providing immediate assistance and encouragement to people in crisis.
