Message from the President

 

Thank you for your interest in The Junior League of Houston, Inc.!

Since 1925, the Junior League of Houston has been committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable. The League’s extensive training and education program cultivates a lifetime of civic service, preparing members to serve as advocates of change in the Houston community and strive to make the city better each day. League members are united by their interest in “Building A Better Community,” and League members demonstrate that interest by countless volunteer hours and their service on numerous boards and coalitions throughout the community.

This year alone, the Junior League of Houston will contribute more than $2 million in volunteer time and direct financial support to 35 community projects, and through grants, community collaborations and community outreach events. The League is able to make this happen because of our amazing community, outstanding Community Partners, and the commitment of the League’s volunteers.

Please explore our website to learn about the impact that our members have on the Greater Houston Area, and how you can support the League’s mission.

• Visit the Community Program section to learn about the services that the League offers to the Community in both trained volunteers and financial resources. For example, non-profit agencies can apply for Community Assistance Grants, or request League volunteers to serve at their agency on an ongoing basis, or for special events. You can also register for free CPR classes, taught by our volunteers.

• Our Tea Room is a beautiful setting for special events of any size and for any occasion, in addition to everyday dining. We invite you to become a Patron member to see all the Tea Room has to offer, or to stop by our League building and purchase pre-made items from The Pantry.

None of these League activities would be possible without the extreme dedication and service from our 5,000 members, and the generosity of our donors. The League offers a variety of opportunities for donors to pledge financial support to our mission of “Building A Better Community”.

Again, thank you for visiting our website, and please do not hesitate to contact us with questions.
