Ghent 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.
