We believe that Texas should be the best place for veterans and their families to live. Our mission is to build the community of veterans by strengthening careers and families.
Veterans have served their country and been part of the best military in history. Help us maintain that camaraderie by connecting veterans and their families to resources, opportunities, and one another.
Your involvement is critical to our success and solving this issue. Thank you again for your help.
Lone Star Veterans Association is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides military veterans with community building activities that strengthen careers and families.
According to the Department of Labor 80% of all jobs are placed through personal networks, but 60% of veterans cite a lack of personal and professional networks when they leave the military as a hurdle to their transition. Building the veteran community means creating professional and personal networks of our successful members to advance their careers, as well as those new to the community to find a career and a family to belong to.
Your support of Lone Star Veterans Association allows us to connect veterans and their families to resources, opportunities and other veterans.Donate

Lone Star Veterans Association's mission of community building is led by our Community Leaders. We support and promote those servant leaders into greater visibility and positions of leadership in our Houston Community. With that as a focus we are proud to supply Leadership Houston with talented leaders from our Community Leader Program.
The mission of Leadership Houston is to enlighten, empower, and engage leaders in the Houston community. We offer a signature class and alumni programs. They connect community leaders to the city they care about.
Leadership Houston is a ten-month journey through Houston's economy, history, and growth plans. Through two overnights and a monthly class day, the program provides exposure to Houston's key industries, including energy, healthcare, education, and government.
Each Leadership Houston class forms a special bond through a shared experience. Many like to stay involved through board service and class day planning. Alumni include 1,800+ leaders in business and government.
Each year, the class project is an opportunity to address a need in the community, and to rally a diverse group to make an impact. Previous class projects included a library renovation at SHAPE Community Center, and a collaboration with the Adopt-A-Stop program to build four METRO stop shelters featuring artwork from local artists.
