Pat Cooney named President of the International Houston Seafarers Centers, Inc.PDF
The Houston International Seafarers' Centers are a home away from home for seafarers visiting the Port of Houston. Chartered in the late 1960s and early 1970s as a non-profit organization under the laws of the State of Texas, the two Centers have during their existence, served over a million visiting seafarers. Both Centers exist as the result of a deep desire and concern within the local maritime industry, followed by active support and involvement of the community and local churches, to provide a safe and welcoming recreational and spiritual environment on land for those who have chosen the sea as their livelihood.
