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.
