Welcome to the Hester House
We strive to ensure community members have all they need to reach their full potential. We believe that everyone has the ability and desire to be their best selves when provided healthy support and the tools necessary to transcend their unique place in life at any moment. We aim to accomplish this via a holistic approach to wellness that touches every aspect of life and can transform generations to come.
For us, that means being a hub, a gathering place, that everyone can count on.
Julia C. Hester House is a long-standing community center in the Fifth Ward area, serving over 1,500 residents annually. Through our mission of providing support and services that empower, build and sustain the Fifth Ward community, we offer an array of support mechanisms that focus on youth development, senior services, social services and workforce development.
