Partnership with Harris County Public Library

We are currently forming a partnership with the Harris County Public Library (HCPL) to bring a mobile library and educational literacy programs to our Mabee WholeLife® Service Center. As part of our initial efforts, we held an after-school story time and book give-away on March 27, 2018. HCPL brought science-related activities for the kids, read stories, and entertained with one of their costumed mascots “Owlbatron.” They also brought the Curiosity Cruiser—a mobile library where the children were able to choose six free, brand-new books to take home to start their own personal libraries.  

We’re excited about this new partnership and look forward to what’s to come! 

2017 Triumph Raffle for Chopard Diamond Necklace

Thanks to the generosity of Chopard in River Oaks, The Women’s Home will raffle off a stunning necklace from the Ice Cube Collection at the Triumph Luncheon. Directly inspired by the vision of ice cubes with their cubic shape and alluring frosty sharpness, this daring piece quietly boasts immaculately semi-set diamonds and a geometrical twist. The multi-faceted necklace is fashioned in 18k yellow gold (ethical  fair-mined certified). With a touch of understated sparkle, it is easy to see why this is one Chopard’s most popular collections.
