The Houston Heights Woman’s Club (HHWC) was founded in 1900, part of the larger women’s club movement across the country. What began as the Houston Heights Literary Club outgrew the parlors of its members and in 1912, the Clubhouse at 1846 Harvard became the official home of the HHWC, and quickly became a hub of the community. Through volunteerism and social activities, generations of HHWC members have kept the legacy of our founders alive.
The history of volunteerism and community service by members of the HHWC ranges from creation of a library at Heights High School to working as Red Cross volunteers during both World Wars.
The mission of the Houston Heights Woman's Club is to preserve the historic integrity of the club and its clubhouse, and provide activities for its members including charitable, educational and social activities supporting such purposes as a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
