Our Mission

Founded in 1925, The Junior League of Houston, Inc. is an organization of women 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.

Getting Results in the Community

This year, the League will contribute approximately $2 million in volunteer time and direct financial support to the Houston community. The League provides trained volunteers and funding to more than 36 community projects. In addition, the League’s community outreach efforts include Community Assistance Grants, Emergency and Resource Contingency Grants, Community Collaborations and Outside Board Representatives. Further, the League’s extensive training and education program cultivates a lifetime of civic service, preparing members to serve as agents of change in the Houston community well beyond their active membership years.

A Vision for Houston

The Junior League of Houston continues a tradition that began in 1925 by 12 visionary women as a means to fund a well-baby clinic for underserved children. That clinic has since expanded its services to become the Junior League Health Care Clinic at Texas Children’s Hospital, and the League has grown to more than 5,000 women strong. We are every bit as committed to developing the potential of women and strengthening our community today as we were in 1925.
