The Houston Heights Woman's Club proudly sponsors many charitable causes. When our founding members adopted a Constitution and By-Laws in 1905, they added the clause "to aid and encourage charitable and educational interests of Houston Heights" as an integral part of the Club's purpose. Community outreach continues to be a vital part of our organization.
The Houston Heights Woman's Club offers a a variety of community service and social activities. Whether you're looking for outreach service in our community, an engaging book club discussion, or a happy hour get-together, the club offers something to match the diverse interests of our membership.
Most of our events are free and open to members and guests.
