Combined Arms Internship
2929 McKinney, Houston, TX 77003 | www.combinedarms.us
The goal of Combined Arms is to foster and perpetuate a long-standing culture of collaboration among military service organizations in the Greater Houston Area. By integrating the network, we will reduce inefficiencies in the military transition process, increasing the impact veterans have in our community, and making Houston the place for veterans.
Combined Arms serves as a Veteran Resource Center in Houston helping to support Veterans transitioning out of the military. We help to reduce program redundancies and costs as well as increase collaboration among other nonprofits serving Veterans through our Salesforce platform, collaborative working space, and committee meetings. Our physical office space, where approximately 10 Veteran nonprofits are housed, help to provide a “one-stop-shop” experience for Veterans to be able to go to one location and find multiple agencies that are willing able to support the Veteran in a holistic approach.
