Program areas at The Junior League of Houston

Tea Room - See Schedule OTea Room: The Junior League of Houston, Inc. established its first community project as a well-baby clinic for indigent children that would eventually grow into the Junior League Health Care Clinic at the world-renowned Texas Children's Hospital. To fund this important endeavor, members formed a Luncheon Club - the genesis of today's Tea Room. The Tea Room supports the League's exempt purposes by serving as a training facility where members are educated in the discipline of service, which is then carried into the various community service projects which the League undertakes. The training and education afforded by the Tea Room enables members to be more effective and efficient community volunteers. The Tea Room exclusively serves its Tea Room patron members and their guests. Effects from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic are evident in the 2021-2022 Tea Room financials.
Membership Services, Training and Education - See Schedule OMembership Services, Training and Education: The Junior League of Houston, Inc.'s membership is more than 4,000 strong. In addition to community volunteer placements, active and provisional League members attend a required number of general membership meetings each year. League members receive ongoing volunteer training and attend a variety of other meetings to include: council, education, leadership/training, community placement and committee meetings. League members create newsletters, seasonal event calendars, a bi-annual magazine and a yearly directory as well as maintain a comprehensive website and social media presence. The goal of membership training and education is to further the mission of the League in developing the potential of women and training volunteers for effective action and leadership in the community.
Community Program and Community Support Services - See Schedule OCommunity Program and Community Support Services: Community projects are a main focus of The Junior League of Houston, Inc. During the 2021 - 2022 fiscal year, the League served individuals through community projects addressing a broad spectrum of needs in Houston and surrounding areas. Many of these programs are initiated by the League and fully supported through League volunteers and funding. League volunteers serve many people - infants, children, women in crisis, families and the elderly; in many places - hospitals, museums, camps and schools; and in many capacities - docents, mentors and program facilitators. During the 2021 - 2022 fiscal year, the League combined volunteer time with direct financial support through grants, collaborative efforts and community projects.
