Veteran News in Texas

Welcome to our 2020-2021 New Member Organizations!

May 4, 2021

Welcome to our newest member organizations!  Since the launch of the Texas Veterans Network in April of 2020 we have welcomed more than 86 member organizations. This explosive growth helps us to serve more veterans and military families across the state of Texas and beyond every single day. Together we wrap our arms around veterans and their family members so they can check out of their unit and check in to ours. 

We are pleased to welcome some of the newest member organizations to the Combined Arms Collaborative. Through our integrated collaborative serving as the connective tissue so that no veteran or family member falls through the cracks, we have been able to connect over 11,000 clients to more than 29,900 resources. We cannot accomplish our mission without the member organizations holding up that system as the pillars of our community. We pride ourselves on highly vetting our new member organizations so that when any organization makes an inter-agency referral, through our innovative system, to another organization they know their client is safe to connect with an organization that is truly committed to high quality programming. 

We also hold all of our organizations to a high standard of contacting each client within 72 hours. Currently, our 119 referral receiving organizations are responding on average within less than 19 hours. That is more than 596 unique resources a client can connect with and receive a response typically within less than a couple days. 

With the addition of these new member organizations, we look forward to supporting even more clients with options to connect to a higher number of holistic resources and supporting best practices for the veteran serving community, not only throughout Texas, but emerging communities nationwide.
