About Us

The Alzheimer's Association, the leader in Alzheimer research, care and support, is the first and largest voluntary health organization dedicated to supporting all affected and to finding prevention methods, treatments and a cure for Alzheimer's.

The Alzheimer's Association Houston & Southeast Texas Chapter has been serving the Greater Houston area for over thirty years. The Houston and 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 25 staff members and over 300 volunteers who serve 37 counties.

Our mission

To eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.

Our vision

A world without Alzheimer's disease.
