buildingGhent Area Ministry, a non-profit outreach ministry, is dedicated to helping those in need in the Norfolk community by addressing economic, social and spiritual needs. GAM offers financial assistance, resources and services regardless of race, gender or employment status.

The goal of GAM is to offer a hand up, not a hand-out.

Ghent Area Ministry (GAM) began assisting those in need in Norfolk in August 2000 as an outreach of neighbor congregations in Ghent who desired to meet the needs of the poor, distressed, and homeless, both singles and families, who approached them with frequency. Centralizing the services under one name and direction resulted in the formation of GAM.

GAM is now located at 1301 Colonial Avenue, Suite 2, Norfolk VA 23517, directly across from the Harris Teeter in Ghent.
