    Volunteer Tuesday

    We will do initial training for volunteers  at 9AM interested in supporting Lone Star Veterans Association in its mission to strengthen the community of post-9/11 veterans in Houston, Texas by connecting veterans to resources, opportunities, and other veterans.

    It is not required to attend both shifts or the initial training more than once.

    We'll operate two shifts one in the morning and the other in the afternoon. We will be calling new veteran members and welcoming them to our community. Volunteers will receive training on talking points, upcoming events, and resource referrals.

    If you have not already signed up to be a volunteer, or unsure if you have, please follow this link to sign up.
