ABOUT US

The Dominica Houston Association was founded in 1996, by a group of Dominican residents in the greater Houston area, with idea to unite and bring Dominicans and their friends together, to promote our rich culture and heritage. Since then we have stayed firm, persevered, and have been very active in the community, providing charitable assistance both locally, and at home in Dominica.

 

Here at Dominica Houston Association, we know that sometimes all it takes to change the world is a little support. We're here to lend a hand, offer assistance, and be a voice of reason for those who need it. Since the beginning of our Non-Profit Organization in 2000, we’ve worked hard to take care of the neediest members of our community. Join us and get into the habit of giving, because it truly does make the world a better place.

 
 

WELCOME TO DOMINICA

I am beauty unspoilt. Culture preserved. I am a diver’s dream and hiker’s paradise. I am the trailhead to adventure and discovery, unlike any other Caribbean destination. I am volcanic peaks, boiling waters and underwater champagne springs. Sparkling waterfalls, rushing streams and rainforest canopies. I am celebrations of music, art and flowers. I am nature’s island. I am Dominica. Are You?

WELCOME TO HOUSTON

Houston is a sprawling metropolis in Texas, extending to Galveston Bay. Alive with energy and rich in diversity, Houston is a dynamic mix of imagination, talent and first-class attractions that makes it a world-class city. Home to a vibrant economy, beautiful surroundings and a population full of optimism and spirit, it's no wonder that Houston is a popular international destination.
