Building the community of veterans by strengthening their careers and families.
Veterans leaving the military face a huge difficulty transitioning to civilian life. Most pronounced is that they lack access to personal and professional networks when they leave the military. While in the military they and their families are part of a unit and a strong support network with clear direction for career paths and family services. We believe that the best service we can provide veterans during their transition is access to a community of veterans that have already transitioned, who have walked the road they find themselves on presently and have the time and ability to give back to strengthen their careers and families.
In order to provide that community, we have to gather our successful veterans that have already transitioned, that are leading their industries and companies in their careers. We need classmates and friends, mothers and fathers, husbands and wives who are secure in their family lives. We need community building activities that gather our leaders, volunteers, and veterans to connect with one another. The greatest resource that can be provided to veterans is one that connects them with other veterans.
With over a dozen events a month in and around the Greater Houston area there always opportunities to meet other veterans, share stories, be inspired, build your network, and strengthen your career & your family. Check out the events for our different LSVA groups.
WE'VE BEEN THERE
We've Been There. Those three words launched LSVA in 2009 when our founders were searching for a community of veterans following combat deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. Since then the organization has grown to the largest of it's kind in the state of Texas with 1 in 10 post-9/11 veterans in Houston signed up as members. We are inclusive to veterans of all eras of service and civilians passionate about supporting veterans. We strive to build our community of veterans through fun, positive, and inclusive activities that target our members' interests and passions aligned with their careers and families. We've been there, we hope you join us.
