Community Leader Program
Combined Arms unites a community of service providers to improve and accelerate services to Houston veterans. Currently, veterans in the Houston metropolitan area have access to the 395 programs provided by 56-member organizations within the Combined Arms collaborative. This grant will deliver that access to Harvey-impacted veterans in the rural Texas Gulf Coast region. Combined Arms will identify, train, and equip 100 leaders across the region to identify and connect with local Harvey-impacted veterans, identify their enduring needs, and connect them with the resources to address those needs. Each leader will connect to, and resolve the challenges of at least five veterans, resulting in a minimum of 500 veterans, and potentially many more, served by this significant outreach effort. This grant, made possible by a partnership between the Bob Woodruff Foundation and the Qatar Harvey Fund, will enable the training and technology needs of 100 leaders empowering them to reach veterans who have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
