At some point in our lives, we've all felt like outsiders.

Maybe you've relocated to the city and it doesn't yet feel like home. Or you feel excluded, forgotten among your peers, like you'll never truly belong. Through these memories and experiences, each of us can relate to each other — whether we are a born and raised Houstonian, recently resettled refugee, or child of immigrants. At its core, FAM Houston believes it takes insiders and outsiders befriending one another to live into God's beloved community.
