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 indigent, 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.
