The National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) is a grassroots organization of volunteers and advocates who turn progressive ideals into action. Inspired by Jewish values, NCJW strives for social justice by improving the quality of life for women, children, and families and by safeguarding individual rights and freedoms.
NCJW has been at the forefront of social change for over a century – championing the needs of women, children and families – while courageously taking a progressive stance on such issues as child welfare, women’s rights, and reproductive freedom. We are in our schools, our courthouses, our State Houses, on the phone and in the trenches working towards changing lives every day.
NCJW Greater Houston Section (GHS) helps change lives with hands on community service projects and advocacy throughout the Greater Houston Area. Issues we address in our community include domestic violence, human trafficking, homelessness, childhood reading fundamentals, foster care reform, adolescent sexual assault, and Houston’s hungry.
We serve the community through our AVDA Client Assistance Fund, Human Traffic Stop NCJW Provisional Supply Bank, Back 2 School Store!, HIPPY graduation celebration, Camp Victory reunion, scholarships, and homeless and foster youth educational programs and services. NCJW GHS social justice programs provide education and legislative advocacy on issues that affect and impact women, children and families in the areas of children’s rights, economic justice, healthcare, human trafficking, reproductive justice, LGBTQ rights, and gender related violence.
All who come to NCJW share this: a belief that progressive ideas put into action can improve the world.
