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.
