Continuing the Mission

 Resources are always in demand!  The East Texas Veterans Alliance works to strengthen the Alliance Resource Network by the inclusion of new Allies—public and private groups, organizations, agencies and individuals—who provide services, policies, and programs benefiting Veterans and their families.

The ETVA is a modest non-profit organization with an extended reach into to the vast Veterans community, working to provide resource contacts via simple outreach strategies including personal contact, events, printed and electronic information, and education.  However simple the system may be, it is not without cost.
