The Alzheimer’s Association Houston &
Southeast Texas Chapter has been serving the
Greater Houston area for over thirty years.
Our Vision: A world without Alzheimer's and all other dementia.™
Our Mission: The Alzheimer's Association leads the way to end Alzheimer's and all other dementia — by accelerating global research, driving risk reduction and early detection, and maximizing quality care and support.
The Houston & Southeast Texas Chapter began in 1980 as a grassroots organization meeting at a local church. Caregivers Harry Walker and Al Malyn created the Chapter while caring for their wives with Alzheimer’s disease. The Chapter was incorporated in 1982. From our humble beginnings as a volunteer-driven organization that primarily served Southwest Houston, we have expanded into an organization with 28 staff members and hundreds of volunteers who serve 37 counties.
