Presidential Greetings

  • Greetings,

     

    Welcome to the National Pan-Hellenic Council of Houston, Incorporated’s website.  It was with great honor and humility that I recently accepted the position of president of this outstanding chapter.

     

    The NPHCH chapter was chartered in 1958 in Houston, Texas.  Since the chartering of this chapter, thirty-three Greek chapters in the Houston, Harris, Fort Bend, Montgomery and Brazoria counties have joined together to form a council of unity and respect. 

    Our service projects include raising money for American Cancer Society, by participating in the Relay 4 Life, Big Brothers and Big Sisters by participating in the Bowling 4 Kids and by participating in Sisters Network by raising money to help African American women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. 

     

    The council has also collaborated with and or received donations from: Shape Community Center, Blue Triangle, Houston Area Urban League-Young Professionals, Houston Counts-Census 2010, Houston’s Habitat for Humanity, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, The League of United Latin American Citizens, Buffalo Soldiers Museum, National Black Accountants Association of Houston, Charming Charlie, Joe Toga, Vitamin Water, Priority 1 EMS, and the Texas Emergency Care Center.

     

    The NPHCH’s signature service project is, “Breakfast with Santa”. This project is a collaborative event where all nine Black Greek Letter Organizations, Blue Triangle YMCA, Acres Homes Multi Service Center, 5th Ward Multi Service Center, Sweet Homes Missionary Baptist Church and SYSCO Foods feed area children and give them toys for Christmas that they may not receive on Christmas day. 

     

    The goals of the council for the next two years are:

    1)  to continue to provide scholarships to area high school and undergraduate students;

    2)  to increase our contributions to the community by sponsoring a 5th Friday Happy Hour with a Purpose;

    3)  creating a signature fundraiser with the Divine 9 Foundation and,

    4) celebrating 60 years of service in the Houston Metropolitan area with a gala. 

     

    The council will also lead social activities with a purpose on a quarterly basis by supporting each other's national programs, sponsoring a political forum before the midterm elections, conducting more voter registration drives and making minorities more aware of the health problems in their community. 

     

    Thank you for visiting National Pan-Hellenic Council, Incorporated of Houston's website.

    President of National Pan-Hellenic Council, Incorporated of Houston
