Welcome to Eastern Texas Community Support!

Houston SoldiersI am Rico, Community Support Coordinator for Eastern Texas. To strengthen its efforts to build stronger working relationships with greater numbers of community partners, the Army formed a team of Community Support Coordinators to build and support the Army in every community across the United States by combining and linking resources. Families now have the choice to access services by phone, through web-based support, through face-to-face contact at a local Military facility. Any of these methods can link to locally based community partners. Strategically located across the United States and the Pacific region, Army Community Support Coordinators work with a growing number of community-based organizations to increase the reach and scope of services to Soldiers and Families.
