Welcome to the Houston Chapter website. In addtion to Houston Chapter news and materials, you also have the advantage of easy navigation to all of the resources and information that the Amigos international site has to offer. It allows us to make available to you the timely and and ever-changing articles, project descriptions, forms, FAQs, videos and information of the IO site. And during the summer there is easy access to the various project updates which are all maintained by the IO and the project staff in the field.
Our site also has links for online fee payment and for making online contributions.
