Unite Texas is a coordinated care network of health and social care providers. Partners in the network are connected through a shared technology platform, Unite Us, which enables them to send and receive electronic referrals, address people’s social needs, and improve health across communities. Unite Texas is sponsored by Alamo Area Council of Governments (AACOG), Texas Tropical Behavioral Health, United Way of Tarrant County, and the University of Houston College of Medicine.
Joining the network is free of cost for most community-based organizations across the Lone Star State.

Unite Texas brings together Unite Us-powered local community networks from across the state. These regional networks include TXServes North Texas, TXServes RGV, and the Texas Veterans Network.
TXServes North Texas
TXServes North Texas, in partnership with AmericaServes, launched in late 2018 with the help of the United Way of Tarrant County to create a coordinated network of public, private, and nonprofit organizations serving service members, veterans, and their families. The TXServes North Texas Coordination Center acts as the central hub of the network, and connects clients to services across North Texas.
TXServes RGV launched in the summer of 2019 in partnership with AmericaServes. Funded by the Valley Baptist Legacy Foundation, veterans, service members, and military families have access to programs and services delivered by a coordinated network of public, private, and nonprofit organizations. Tropical Texas Behavioral Health acts as the central hub of the network, and connects clients to services within the Rio Grande Valley.
Texas Veterans Network
Previously called TXServes San Antonio, the Texas Veterans Network began in June 2017 in partnership with AmericaServes. This network currently serves service members, veterans, and their families in the Alamo Area, and will soon expand into South Texas and the Coastal Bend. With the help of the Alamo Area Council of Governments (AACOG), this initiative creates a coordinated network of public, private, and nonprofit organizations serving service members, veterans, and their families. AACOG acts as the central hub of the Texas Veterans Network, and connects clients to services across the state and beyond.
All of the success Texas Veterans Network has had would not be possible without the support of our valued partner, Unite Us. I want to express my gratitude to Unite Us for their leadership and outstanding service to the 27 counties that the Alamo Area Council of Governments (AACOG) provides through this partnership. We look forward to working together alongside community organizations in serving and connecting our nation’s best to the resources they need.
– Gary Timpson, Veteran Programs Coordinator
The mission of the University of Houston College of Medicine is to improve the health and health care of the population of the city of Houston and the state of Texas. By working with the Unite Us platform, we will be able to effectively and efficiently connect those with needs to our participating network organizations who can help to address those needs. This helps us to achieve our mission, and is the reason that we chose Unite Us as our partner in this effort.Dr. Stephen J. Spann, M.D., MBA, the founding dean of the College of Medicine and vice-president for Medical Affairs at the University of Houston
TXServes RGV has the passion to positively impact our heroes’ lives and those who support them. We are inspired by the end results of our services.
