At New Politics Leadership Academy, we know that politics is service and it’s central to how we solve the big challenges faced by our country. We also know that people who have served the country are our nation’s best change makers, and we need them in politics. That’s why we lower the barrier of entry for veterans and national service alumni interested in politics through training and network-building.

Pacifica Sauer left high school at the age 17 to join the U.S. Navy. "Life was new and exciting, and I couldn't wait to be in it," she said. In February of 1996, Sauer left home for boot camp in Great Lakes, Illinois, ready for a big adventure. "It was challenging in the ways I expected it to be, and shocking in others. Service in the military is a proud family tradition. It was something I found worth doing."

Through a partnership with the Bob Woodruff Foundation, Combined Arms and January Advisors have teamed up to understand the impact of Hurricane Harvey on the veteran population of Houston and the Gulf Coast region, and the response by social service providers. You can read the full report below and check out the interactive data dashboard here.
Improvised explosive devices and other explosions in war have been the cause of limb loss, severe burns, and other visible injuries. Research in the veteran and civilian populations indicates there is a link between body image, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
As Operation Deep Dive continues to build momentum among key community stakeholders in Houston, we are elated to use this opportunity to share about the success we’ve had in relation to data sharing.
Transition means forward movement and, when veterans embark on their path to civilian life, Combined Arms is with them on that journey. And we need you there with us.
5,000 more veterans will call Houston their home this year, each one ready and able to have an incredible impact on our city.
How will we serve those who served us?
