This is the Houston Chapter of the group I brought together in Minnesota during my 6+ years there. Minneapolis Paranormal Research Society or MPRS. They currently have over 900 members at this time!
Due to a traumatic spinal injury, I relocated to be near my support group of family and friends in the Houston area in June of 2014. Beginning July 12th, the first Meet Up was held with paranormal topics and investigations being our focus.
We have found ways to meet the needs of many without limiting membership. This was and will always be a challenge but the benifits outweigh the struggles. HPRS will allow members with access to reportedly active sites, an opportunity to investigate with an experienced team simply by bringing the investigation to the group or building a relationship with the team through monthly meet up attendance. As time has gone on, a core team has developed as well as Co Organizers to support my limitations, and as we prided ourselves at MPRS, HPRS will continue to bring one to two first time investigators on each investigation, making the investigation process accessible to many who would otherwise not have the opportunity. On occasion we will hold "field trip" style investigations where many can attend. Most investigations require 4 to 9 team members. In addition, there will be a monthly meet up where we will discuss past investigations, up coming investigations, new equipment and techniques. With the last half reserved for discussing the paranormal experiences of our members.
Check the site for meet up dates. We look forward to the opportunity to discuss personal experiences, get feedback from others and grow in our understanding through sharing of those experiences.
I'm excited to see how the membership evolves and impacts the community interested in these topics! As always, Happy Haunting, Kat
