Allies In Service

llies in Service’s mission was to identify and support veterans who need assistance in the areas of employment, housing, education, and health care. Partnering with veterans, employers and other veteran support organizations, to help educate and enhance the quality of life of all veterans. This page is to recognize the truly outstanding work Vietnam Veteran and former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach gave back to his brothers in arms when he founded Allies in Service to reach out to veterans and the community by leveraging an all-encompassing network of support in the areas of employment, housing, education, and health care. Allies in Service’s vision was that our community of service members, veterans, and their families has access to quality healthcare, education, safe and affordable housing choices, and meaningful employment. The Warrior Mentorship Program connected Dallas-area veterans, service members, and spouses (Pros) with business professionals (Mentors) for a year-long mentorship. Mentors and Pros were paired based on career objectives, background, and professional experience. The goals of the mentorship program were defined between Mentors and Pros through regular discussions and meetings, and a personalized action plan created and implemented to achieve those goals. Pairing Pros with Mentors created a network of support outside the standard channels, enabling the Pro to reach his or her full potential while transitioning into corporate careers. The Warrior Mentorship Program was a competitive program with a limited number of Pro openings, so it is important to complete the application. The application was used to evaluate strength as a candidate as well as assist Allies in Service in finding the best possible Mentor. All Pros participate in a program orientation, mock interview, monthly meetings, and one-on-one mentoring with a designated Mentor. Allies in Service Mentors act as an extra set of eyes and ears for our Pros as they establish career goals, seek professional development opportunities, network, and negotiate employment offers. Any veteran, service member, or their spouse who has honorably served in any branch of service was eligible to apply for the program as a Pro. All of this was made possible with the sponsorship of large national businesses like Microsoft Corp, and local employers providing maintenance and similar services. What they all share is commitment to the cause and the values of the foundation. A full list of sponsors and further information on the future of the program and the organization to follow along with the fresh website shortly, so please stay tuned.

Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR)

Who is ESGR

ESGR, a Department of Defense program, was established in 1972 to promote cooperation and understanding between Reserve Component Service members and their civilian employers and to assist in the resolution of conflicts arising from an employee’s military commitment. ESGR is supported by a network of more than 3,000 volunteers in 54 committees located across all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam-CNMI (Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands), Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Volunteers, hailing from small business and industry, government, education, and prior military service bring a vast wealth of experience to assist in serving employers, Service members, and their families. Together with Headquarters ESGR staff and a small cadre of support staff for each State Committee, volunteers work to promote and enhance employer support for military service in the Guard and Reserve.

ESGR has served our country for more than 45 years, fostering a culture in which all employers support and value the employment and military service of members of the National Guard and Reserve in the United States. These citizen warriors could not defend and protect us at home and abroad without the continued promise of meaningful civilian employment for themselves and their families. ESGR has continued to adapt to meet the needs of Reserve Component members, their families, and America’s employers by joining forces with a network of other national, state, and local government and professional trade organizations. Together, We All Serve!

Heroes Linked

AN INSUFFICIENT PROFESSIONAL NETWORK AND AN UNCLEAR PATH TO EMPLOYMENT ARE TOO OFTEN AN UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCE OF MILITARY SERVICE. THIS MUST CHANGE.

65% of veterans are likely to leave their first civilian job within 2 years.

The Heroes Linked Story
Heroes Linked was conceived by individuals who had not served in the U.S. military and wanted to actively honor those that did. Servicepersons transitioning out of active duty military have overwhelmingly said that the biggest challenge lying ahead of them is navigating the civilian job market. And their ranks will swell in coming years. Defense cutbacks will push more than 100,000 servicepersons out of the military each year for the next decade, including tens of thousands who expected their service to be a career.

Heroes Linked rests upon the simple premise that Americans who did not serve in the military possess something that is of great value to Veterans and servicepersons transitioning out of the military – their career experiences and knowledge of the private sector job market. The question was, how could such knowledge be best imparted to the thousands that could benefit from it? Understanding the power of personal mentoring for both Advisor and Advisee, the challenge was adapting the model to fit the needs of the swelling Veterans community. The result became Heroes Linked.

Utilizing and array of cutting edge communication technologies, Heroes Linked is disrupting the personal mentoring paradigm to make it accessible, mobile, and scalable.

Heroes Linked recognizes that family is the heart of the U.S. Armed Forces. We welcome Gold Star families and the spouses of our veterans and servicepersons in transition. They deserve to receive the same level of assistance as their loved ones in uniform.

Love Hope Ranch

RESTORING HERO’s & REUNITING THE FAMILY

The most painful injuries are not always visible.  Whether it’s Post Traumatic Stress (PTS), combat stress or any other mental health condition, we are here to help you get through it.  Every veteran and 1st responder affected by PTS has unique challenges and goals.  We provide a variety of programs and services to help these individuals take the steps each day needed to put trauma and pain behind them and pursue a brighter tomorrow.

LOVE HOPE RANCH operates to provide tools for healing and restoration for the entire family.  Our programs will allow our veterans the opportunity to make strides to positively change their lives and others affected by PTS.  Our program model addresses the physical and mental health needs of each individual.

Are you someone affected by or experiencing PTS? Can you imagine your life free from fear and anxiety? Know that PTS does not have to be a lifelong disorder. Healing, Restoration and Recovery is possible.

This program is fully funded by donors and grants through our 501(c)3. There will be no cost for the veteran and family.

 

LOVE HOPE RANCH

Restoration camp gives the guests and family members the tools to overcome the obstacles they face in life.  In an all-male, all-female, couples retreat or youth camp, you’ll participate in activities such as interacting with horses, nature trail walking, fishing, camp fire sessions, outdoor cooking, scavenger hunts and more.  Through a multi-day adventure with PTSD trained professionals and fellow warriors, you’ll find yourself not only building strong relationships, but also healing, restoring your sense of self, and rediscovering a new YOU.

EQUINE THERAPY

Horses have been used as healing therapy since ancient times. The beauty and spirit of these animals is very much like our own: rough, strong, ready to run great lengths for freedom, however calm and peaceful inside. Through this therapy we will find a sense of peace, love, friendship, trust, and unity with our animal companion.

YOUTH OUTREACH

Our Youth Program offers fun filled options for your child to make memories that will last for a lifetime. We make time for outdoor fun, art creation, healing moments with Jesus’ teaching, self-development, athletic obstacles for team building, and more.

MARRIAGE RESTORATION

Trauma affects everyone in its path. It is vital that we understand that this state of mind is only temporary. By learning to embrace each other’s needs thru grace, patience and forgiveness, we can bring back the peace, love and spark that you once had within your relationship.

RELAXATION & TRANQUILITY

Our minds and bodies tend to get away from us at times. In order to regain control and find inner peace, we must enter a state of relaxation. The quiet and stillness is critical for our mind, body and soul to align. Are we really out of control, or do we just feel like it?

We are the only one in control of our thoughts and feelings, so it is up to us to maintain a healthy body and sound mind. With a little restoration and polish, you can feel brand new. With a little vulnerability and trust, you step out of the dark loop of trauma that plays over and over.

Military Transition Roundtable (MTR)

Many military personnel today are frustrated with the transition process. Stories of submitting dozens, if not over hundreds of resumes, with no response are not uncommon. While Department of Defense (DoD) and non-military transition programs are focused on the skills required to transition, they have not resolved this frustration.

 

Our MasterMind cohorts take like-mined individuals who will meet on a regular basis to share challenges, receive feedback/ideas, and discuss/refine action plans. Our goal in this program is to build an accountability group within cohorts. The MasterMinds group would be implemented as “Top Off” and “Capstone” programs that would augment and enhance the current DoD provided Transition Assistance Programs

Texas Veterans Commission

OUR MISSION

Since 1927, the mission of the Texas Veterans Commission has been to advocate for and provide superior service to veterans that will significantly improve the quality of life for all Texas veterans, their families, and survivors.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

The Texas Veterans Commission will aggressively advocate for Texas veterans, their families, and survivors.

The Texas Veterans Commission will provide quality service through eight program areas: Claims Representation and Counseling, Veterans Employment Services, Veterans Education, Veteran Entrepreneur Program, Health Care Advocacy, Veterans Mental Health Program, Women Veterans Program, and the Fund for Veterans’ Assistance.

The Texas Veterans Commission will provide quality service through a dedicated, professional, and well trained workforce.

The Texas Veterans Commission will connect with all veterans across the state, and tailor its service to meet their needs and the needs of their families and survivors.

The Texas Veterans Commission will take the lead in coordinating efforts between our eight programs and with federal, state, and local governmental offices and private organizations that provide services and assistance to veterans.

The Texas Veterans Commission will ensure that Texas veterans maintain the highest quality of life and well-being through its advocacy and dedication to veterans’ services.

We hold ourselves personally and professionally accountable to provide exemplary customer service to veterans, their families, and survivors through our core values.

PROFESSIONALISM

Perform your duties to the highest standard and providing excellent customer service in every program area.

INTEGRITY

Provide fair, honest and objective advocacy in an ethical manner while displaying the highest standard of conduct both on and off duty.

COMPASSION

Consistently demonstrate care, concern and understanding in every encounter with Veterans, family members and stakeholders.

COMMITMENT

Fully dedicated to develop yourself to become the best you can be in carrying out the mission of the TVC.

TEAMWORK

Working together in a positive and productive manner to accomplish the mission and goals of the agency.

The Texas Veterans Commission was created in 1927 as the State Service Office to assist veterans of the Indian wars, Spanish-American War and World War I. Our purpose has always been to act as the state appointed advocate of Texas veterans as they attempt to secure the benefits rightfully earned in exchange for their service in our nation’s armed forces.

We are able to do this through our eight program areas:

  • Claims Representation and Counseling serves veterans, their dependents and survivors, in all matters pertaining to veterans’ disability benefits and rights. It is the designated agency of the state of Texas to represent the State and its veterans before the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
  • Veterans Education Program approves all programs for Chapter 30, 33, 35, 1606, and 1607 federal educational benefits. Through an approval process, the Texas Veterans Commission ensures that institutions and employers are in compliance with federal guidelines and are qualified to provide the type of training offered.
  • Veterans Employment Services offers employment services to Texas veterans and helps employers find qualified veteran job applicants. The goal of these services is to match veteran job seekers with the best employment opportunities available.
  • The purpose of the Veteran Entrepreneur Program (VEP) is to foster and promote veteran entrepreneurship throughout the state of Texas.  The Texas Veterans Commission, with the help of the Governor’s office and several prominent Legislators, passed Senate Bill 1476 in 2013. This allowed for the funding of a team of experienced business consultants to be available for any veteran in the state of Texas to consult with, free of charge to the veteran.
  • Fund for Veterans’ Assistance is a program that makes grants to eligible charitable organizations, local government agencies, and Veterans Service Organizations (VSOs) that provide direct services to Texas veterans and their families.
  • The Health Care Advocacy Department is a team of highly-trained Texas Veteran Commission staff, strategically positioned across the state to act as liaisons for Texas veterans in addressing issues involving Veterans Administration health care related services.
  • In collaboration with the Department of State Health Services, the Texas Veterans Commission’s Veterans Mental Health Program consists of multiple initiatives focusing on peer support, clinical mental health care access, and community collaboration.
  • The Women Veterans Program serves women veterans by helping them to obtain their benefits and services. We strive to raise awareness of women veteran contributions and services to our country and state, as well as inform and educate women veterans and their resource providers about the benefits and services to women veterans.

Through these program areas, the Texas Veterans Commission provides excellent service so that each veteran receives every benefit that they deserve. As a veteran works with our counselors, the quality of life for that veteran and their family significantly increases.

Today, Texas is leading the country by making sure each veteran is represented and cared for. The people of Texas have sent a clear message that the sacrifices made by veterans and their families are deeply appreciated, and that there is an agency that will stand by them and take care of them: the Texas Veterans Commission.

USO Transition Specialists provide these free services through one on-one support (either virtually, or in person) and help military families create a plan for success now – and for the future.

Victory for Veterans

Our Mission – Restoring Hope

Our mission is to reduce suicide among our warriors: our Veterans, First Responders and Care Givers!

​Like us all, Veterans, First Responders and Care Givers need a helping hand now and then and we help these men and women through Healing and Support.

Check out our flagship Warriors For Life Virtual Community Support Group and our Wellness Center initiative under way!

Non-profit (501c3), public foundation to serve Veterans by reducing suicides, homelessness, joblessness, and effects of PTSD and other emotional struggles and disabilities.

We reduce suicides by providing Employment opportunities. Lack of employment accounts for up to 20% of suicides. We are working on Health and Housing initiatives as well, so please check back often to learn more and see how you can help out.
