What we're about
Welcome to the Expat Women in the Houston Loop group. This is a purely social group for women who have lived outside the USA for a time or who have moved from overseas to the Houston loop 610 area. We hope to foster friendships and help one another settle in the Houston. In that vein, we do limit membership to the area in or near the Houston 610 loop, including also Bellaire and Memorial. We aim to make it possible to friendships to flourish as they naturally do when we live close proximity, so those living outside the Beltway 8 may find that it’s too far and that there are groups closer to home. We would be happy to direct you to groups in your area if you are not close enough to join us. As MeetUp is a paid site, we are charged by our membership numbers and do request that those joining pay a fee of $5 per year.
We meet twice a month on Friday mornings at 9:30 for coffee, chats, the laughter of friends and shared experiences, and the opportunity to talk to those who know the experience of living abroad and moving (or moving back) to Houston. It’s also an opportunity to find out about living in Houston from those who are more settled, but remember being new here. We are truly an international group of women of all ages. While we enjoy hearing about hobbies and interests, this is not a group for business solicitations. Let’s meet over “a cuppa” in a fabulous cafe and get to know each other!
In order to be approved for the group, you must have a profile photo that shows your face and also tell us in which part of Houston you are living and where you’ve lived overseas. Please answer the questions to be approved. If you haven’t done so, you may be contacted by an admin (Fiona or Lynda) requesting the information.
We also have a Facebook presence for those who use it. It can be found at: http://www.facebook.com/groups/639465472791705/
Thanks and we look forward to you joining us and getting to know you.
Fiona and Lynda
