Precinct One proudly sponsors the Julia C. Hester House, a long-standing community center in the Fifth Ward area, serving over 1,500 residents annually. Named to honor Ms. Hester for her contributions and dedication to youth, Hester House offers an array of support mechanisms that focus on youth development, senior services, social services and workforce development. For over 75 years, this institution has been the heart of the Fifth Ward area and a haven for residents of all ages and backgrounds.
Each day our Precinct One team works to improve the quality of lives of our constituents and create opportunities that further equity, sustainability and growth for Houston families. We are proud to be closer towards reaching that goal due in large part to our partnership with Hester House.
