ため is a noun, and you can generally think of it as "purpose" or "reason." It functions grammatically the way nouns normally do, so you can use it with a verb (っているため), an adjective (いため), or a noun + の (のため). When used as part of an adverb phrase giving a reason, it's frequently seen as ために. から is a conjunction - it's a lot more like English "because." Unlike ため, you can use it with です・ます verbs as well as plain form; also unlike ため, it needs to follow です or だ when used with a noun (だから).
