Learn. Experience. Share the culture.


Love and prayers to our ICCC family

Dear Members and Friends,

We hope that you, your families, and loved ones are safe and sound as Houston and the surrounding areas continue to recover from Hurricane Harvey. You have been and continue to be in our thoughts and prayers. If you have a moment, please reach out to let us know how you are doing.

Our hearts are aching for those who have lost their homes and belongings to floodwaters but we know that together we can overcome and persevere. The ICCC is a family that will continue to move forward as one.

With all the love we can send,
The Italian Cultural and Community Center
