About Us

Who We Are

The mission of Memorial Assistance Ministries (MAM) is to ensure that families have the means to meet their basic needs. The Literacy Advance program at MAM works alongside adults to improve their English language and literacy skills so that they can achieve their goals of becoming engaged members of our Houston community.

What We Do

Volunteers work with small groups of adults who are learning English (speaking and listening focus). Our approach empowers and equips volunteers to lead small groups in learning together around a table, rather than a "lecture-from-the-front" method, encouraging students to speak as much as possible.

Adults in English classes are placed according to their ability level, in groups of around 5 - 8 learners. Volunteers do not need to speak another language to lead a class, as we strongly encourage all classes to be conducted in English. This program is known as ESL (English as a Second Language). We provide training, resources, and plenty of support.
