Houston Community Services

Houston Community Services Houston Community Services is a 501(C) 3 non-profit organization Houston Community Services (HCS) is a private non-profit, tax exempt organization with a primary constituency of Latinos.

HCS was founded in 1974 by 12 University of Houston students, who came together to discuss various problems faced by the Latina/o community of Houston, most of whom reside in the East End. Through discussion of first hand experiences, it was decided that the best method to address the problems, was to establish a community center. The center would serve as a clearinghouse to inform and educate the community. Thus HCS was incorporated in 1975, with three primary missions: 1) to establish a social service center; 2) to promote cultural and educational enrichment; and 3) to engage in economic development activities.

A través de la discusión de experiencias de primera mano, se decidió que el mejor método para los problemas era establecer un centro comunitario. El centro servirá como centro de información y educación para la comunidad. Así HCS fue constituida en 1975, con tres misiones primarias: 1) establecer un centro de servicios sociales; 2) promover el desarrollo cultural y enriquecimiento; Y 3) participar en actividades de desarrollo económico.
