The St. Kitts-Nevis Association of Houston (SKNAH) was formally established in 2008 by two first generation Kittitian-Americans seeking to become more connected with their Kittitian Heritage. Since then, the young association has blossomed into a registered 501(c)3 non-profit aimed at the support, enrichment and social welfare of Kittitians and Nevisians in the Federation and the Greater Houston, TX area. SKNAH promotes education, volunteerism, community and culture. To learn more about SKNAH visit our website, find us on Facebook or email us at
