About CAM

Cypress Assistance Ministries is a faith based organization that serves individuals and families in financial crisis, those on the brink of homelessness, the elderly, the unemployed and anyone that needs hope for a better future.

Unexpected events such as illness, separation, job loss, and family crisis can be overwhelming, and that’s when CAM steps in. Assistance ranges from financial help with rent or utilities, food, furniture, clothing and household goods to providing job counseling services and job leads.

Our goal is to restore our neighbors, regardless of religious or ethnic background, to self-sufficiency. In addition, CAM provides school supplies, holiday meals, and toys at Christmas for our neighbors in need.

Our Mission

In faith and partnership with the community, Cypress Assistance Ministries (CAM) turns stumbling blocks into stepping stones by making resources available to individuals and families facing adversity.

Our Vision

We envision CAM leading a network of partners who are eager to build our community by addressing the needs of those who are battling adversity.

Our Statement of Faith

We believe in the one eternal God; infinite in power, Holy in nature, attributes and purpose; and possessing absolute deity. We believe in the loving one true God, eternally existing in three persons:  Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in the Holy Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, given by God and divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy, and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. We believe that all people are to be treated with kindness, mercy, and grace and that our duty as Believers is to act as the Hands and Feet of Christ and to love others as God loves us.

Our History

The rich history of our ministry is testimony to the willingness of the community to help their neighbors in crisis and to continue to do so as we move into the future.

Cypress Assistance Ministries was founded in July of 1990 as the ministry of a local church, serving macaroni and cheese meals from the backseat of a car. Within a year CAM was its own entity with a nonprofit status and ready to grow.

Today, we’re a part of the culture of the Cy-Fair community and we continue to grow through the support and dedication of many individuals, families, congregations, businesses and organizations.

Our mission is clear: helping those in need move into self-sufficiency.
