The Houston Heights Woman’s Club was founded in 1900, part of the larger women’s club movement across the country. What began as the Houston Heights Literary Club soon outgrew the parlors of its members. In 1912, the Clubhouse at 1846 Harvard became the official home of the Houston Heights Woman’s Club. This Club would become part of the very fabric of the Heights neighborhood. Through volunteerism and social activities, generations of HHWC members have kept the legacy of our founders alive.


Today, our Club is growing while others have stalled. This is due in part to the strong bond Heights area residents feel to the neighborhood and its history. Our success can also be credited to the forward thinking nature of the women who have helmed the HHWC for the last century.


Upon adopting our Constitution and By-Laws during the winter of 1905, our founders included as part of its purpose an obligation to "aid and encourage charitable and educational interests of Houston Heights." 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.

Involvement in the community is just as important today! Every year, members dedicate hours of time and immeasurable units of talent to assist our community and our neighbors. We actively support our local schools through literacy programs (see our Women's Studies Library Initiative!) and direct support of Communities of Schools with monetary and in-kind donations to Heights High School. Our members love providing holiday cheer to disadvantaged students with gift bags and parties. We also are honored to pitch in on ad hoc projects when the need arises. Beneficiaries include Browning Elementary School, Hamilton and Hogg Middle School, Heights High School, Love Elementary School, Ross Elementary School, Star of Hope Women & Family Shelter and area senior living facilities.


But we also find time to enjoy our sisterhood! Please refer to our Evening and Heritage Group pages for more details. The Club encourages regular social activities for members to foster friendships.
