Taking over as the new executive director of Humble Area Assistance Ministries (HAAM) is Jim Randall, who has big plans for the future. Randall is replacing Deborah Coppola. “HAAM has been here for over 20 years. Our primary goal is to meet people at a point of need and go beyond. That’s our drive and goal. Programs will be developed to help clients rise above their circumstances.” Before serving HAAM as executive director, Randall used his leadership and guidance skills to help execute a strategic plan for a new ministry at Kingwood United Methodist Church. Now, as he makes the transition to HAAM, he plans to harness those same skills as he works to benefit HAAM and the community. “I am the main cheerleader. I am here to spread the word about this wonderful organization, to empower the staff to grow, and to create and implement a vision with the help of an outstanding board of directors, staff and volunteers,” Randall stated. With a talented staff and unparalleled volunteers, Randall notes that HAAM is looking to be the best they can be. “We plan to drive a mindset of excellence and service. As needs are identified, programs will be developed,” said Randall. Randall plans to operate based on the idea of an open-leadership style focusing on setting and achieving goals while remaining team oriented. He also plans to remain involved within the community. “I plan to seek, create and nurture meaningful partnerships to further advance our mission,” he noted. On the agenda for the future, Randall sees the potential for expansion stating, “In going forward to meet our needs, we are experiencing space challenges. While details are still being developed, we hope to launch a campaign for expansion as opportunities arise.” The next big event for HAAM is their annual Raise the Roof Fundraiser coming to the Humble Civic Center, Sunday, March 24. HAAM hopes to raise funds to help expand facilities and aid the services they provide. The fundraiser will feature a chili cook-off, raffle, silent auction, children’s area and more.
