Welcome to India House Houston!
With over 120,000 Houston area Indo-Americans, India House represents a rapidly growing segment of Houstonians. Within this community, various organizations provide community services including cultural and language education, immigration services, medical services, and legal services. India House provides the “facility and infrastructure to support the broad needs of the Indian community” and the disconnected organizations providing services to this community. Recognizing these facts and to provide most essential services and participate with the American community at large, it was the desire of the Indo-American community to build a facility that would welcome all to receive and share values among all who wish to participate.
The new facility is located in the Southwest part of Houston at 8888 West Bellfort Avenue, Houston , TX 77031. Our aim is to provide programs and services catered for:
Community seniors – the facility includes senior activity areas and senior support services
Community Educational Needs – the facility provides cultural, vocational and continuing education classes and a library
Community Service Needs – the facility provides basic healthcare and wellness services, legal counseling, immigrant services, and serves as a home for other non-profit service entities.
Community Families and Singles - the facility will provide childcare, continuing education classes, recreational activities and social functions
Community Cultural Activities – the facility provides a large ball room and banquet hall for various performances and activities held by various organizations.
These program and services requirements described outline two distinct project phases.
• Phase-I Addresses immediate need for a facility providing assistance to seniors, families, adults, recent immigrant populations and medical clinic. Phase 1(b) consists of the construction of a ballroom to conduct community activities.
• Phase-II Expands on the services provided to the community and enriches the Greater Houston population with venues for cultural events, performing and visual arts and expression of cultural heritage. Phase 2 also consists of the construction of a Cultural Arts Center and Expanded Community Services.
The India House vision is universal. Instigated to “promote Indian culture and values by providing social, cultural, recreational and community programs, thereby showcasing the Indian community, and raising awareness about Indian culture in the local community,” the vision was expanded to include a campus facility to serve not only the Indo-American community but all Houstonians.
