Connect Now to Resources in Louisiana! - Combined Arms is thrilled to announce our expansion into the state of Louisiana through our new partnership with the Louisiana Department of Veterans Affairs (LDVA). Louisiana is home to 283,000+ Veterans that will benefit from this leap forward in the advancement of veteran care through the Combined Arms eco-system that will now be implemented in the state. This expansive partnership is the next step in the evolution of Louisiana’s veteran network that supports the military-connected community to ensure they can easily and efficiently access the resources, services, and benefits by streamlining connections between them and the social service agencies that can meet their personal and professional needs. Combined Arms is proud to support this expansion of resources through the Combined Arms technology and network.
Combined Arms Louisiana Regional Manager, Ross Davies, has been onboarding organizations to serve the holistic needs of Louisiana veterans and their families. In addition to the services provided by the Louisiana Department of Veterans Affairs, veterans can connect with the following local organizations: Bastion Community of Resilience, Acadiana Veteran Alliance, Everywarrior, Southeast Louisiana Legal Services, and NextOp, along with 45 national organizations.
“We are excited about this opportunity to strengthen the means by which we serve Louisiana’s veterans and their families,” said LDVA Secretary Joey Strickland, COL (USA Retired). “Through this partnership with Combined Arms, our Department will expand our use of technology to meet veterans where they are and offer them access to a full range of services both provided by LDVA and by external organizations.”
“Combined Arms is focused on improving veterans’ well-being by connecting them to the community. Thanks to generous support from Boeing, we have been laying the foundation in Louisiana for several months and are excited to announce our 3rd statewide network in partnership with the Louisiana Department of Veterans Affairs.” - Mike Hutchings, CEO of Combined Arms
