Abstract

Houston Heights is recognized as one of Houston's most stable yet diverse communities. Established Latinos, new immigrants, African-Americans, Anglos, gay/lesbian subpopulations, and young and old people comprise the population of the Heights. Diversity is a changing component that the Heights' residents, institutions, and associations have addressed and continue to address to create and maintain a stable community.
