The Mehta Family Foundation (MFF) supported renovation of the Graduate School of Social Work Building at the University of Houston. The main feature of the renovated building is the grand entrance of the new Mehta Family Community Pavilion, which features an open and welcoming design that adds a modern style and character to the previously nondescript exterior. The space, dedicated to the work done by the faculty and students, celebrates the continuous impact graduates of the program have made in Texas and beyond.
