The Better Business Bureau of Metropolitan Houston was founded in 1922 by a group of business owners who wanted to establish a means of self-regulation in an effort to combat unscrupulous business practices as well as providing consumers an avenue to resolve problems with businesses. In 1970, the Bureau established the Education Foundation as a separate 501©3 nonprofit organization to promote basic consumer awareness.  Since the addition of a full-time Executive Director in 1998, the Education Foundation has established four programs with the primary goal of educating and advocating on behalf of consumers to combat unethical business practices and promote consumer awareness.  More information on the BBB of Houston can be found at
