Houston Northwest Community Center, Inc. was initiated by Bear Creek United Methodist Church in 2009 to inspire and equip people in our community to change their future. Created not only to serve the needs of people in Northwest Harris County, HNwCC is beginning to help fill the void created when BCAM closed its doors in this community.

HNwCC seeks other partners and churches that share our vision. We are pleased that Bear Creek United Methodist Church continues to enthusiastically support our vision and mission. Today, HNwCC programs operate out of the facilities of the church.


HNwCC joins Cy-Fair Houston Chamber of Commerce August 17, 2015.
