How the Program Works

A prospective candidate will find a sponsor who is a member of the Cypress Creek Chapter to mentor her through the process. She should attend a Prospective Member Open House in October.

Membership is by invitation. The review process focuses solely on the mother. No information about the daughter is reviewed or considered. Offers of membership are based on compatibility with the goals, traditions, and members of the Cypress Creek Chapter.


Cypress Creek Chapter

The Cypress Creek Chapter was chartered in 1985, as the 25th chapter in National Charity League, Inc. We are proud to be the first Chapter in Houston, and just the second in all of Texas. Now there are over 215 total NCL, Inc. Chapters nationwide, and so many in Northwest Houston alone that we now have our own district!

 The thirty-five Founding Patronesses and their daughters represent a “who’s who” of community leaders our area, not only in 1985 but to this day. We are thankful for their legacy of service and for all who have come since then our over thirty years as a Chapter. Through partnerships with over 18 service organizations, our volunteers collectively contribute over 6,800 hours to the Northwest Harris County community. We also sponsor several unique events, most notably our Back to School Food Drive to restock the food pantries at both Northwest Assistance Ministries and Tomball Emergency Assistance Ministries.

 We welcome Members from the Northwest Harris County area, and have Members from Cypress-Fairbanks, Klein, Tomball, and Spring school districts, as well as numerous private schools in the community.
