Texas Workforce Commission and Texas Veterans Network

January 21, 2021

Combined Arms, a Texas-based collaborative impact organization using an innovative approach of technology and service delivery to disrupt the veteran transition experience, has partnered with the Texas Workforce Commission to connect veterans and their families with the resources and programming needed to thrive in the Texas Veterans Network. This new network will make Texas the first interconnected state for veterans services, growing the transition model to meet the needs of fragmented communities and the veteran families who live in them.

TWC’s mission is to promote and support a workforce system that creates value and offers employers, individuals, and communities the opportunity to achieve and sustain economic prosperity. 

The major functions of TWC include developing the workforce, providing support services such as child care for targeted populations participating in workforce training and adult education and literacy services, providing services for people with disabilities to obtain training and employment, and administering the unemployment benefits and tax programs. TWC also provides information and analysis on shifts in occupations and industries within the state and seeks to reduce discrimination in employment and housing through education and enforcement of state and federal laws.

We are proud to partner with TWC  through the Texas Veterans Network to better serve our veterans and their families. To learn more about TVN and the partnership with TWC, visit http://texasveterans.network.
