The Julia C. Hester House mission is to enhance the quality of life in Houston’s Fifth Ward and surrounding communities through programs and services that promote self-empowerment.

Our mission and goals guide our work and drive us to continuously improve and expand our programs and services to better meet the needs of the community.

We have a long history of serving the Fifth Ward community and have developed strong connections and relationships with the residents.  Our programs and services are designed to address the specific needs and challenges faced by the community, from providing educational and recreational opportunities for youth to offering employment training and support for adults.

We are committed to creating a safe and caring environment for all community members. We understand the importance of providing a sense of belonging and support, especially for vulnerable populations such as youth and seniors.
