The Family Support Program was established in August 2014 by the wives of Upstate Warrior Solution (UWS). Its purpose is to build relationships within the local community of veterans and provide a support system for the families.
Often veteran wives feel overlooked as they care for and support their veteran. This program is specifically designed to provide, not only, special events for women/families to enjoy, but also to connect women in the local community and offer a support network.
- PAST EVENTS
While this program is very new, UWS has already two events for the coordinated veteran’s wives. These events included a painting and wine class downtown Greenville and, most recently, wreath making event provided by ladies of The Cliffs community. The ladies of The Cliffs community did an outstanding job of making the veteran’s wives feel special and supported.
Another great event was the Clemson Military Appreciation Game. This was a free event to all UWS staff, volunteers, and clients. All veterans were asked to stand during half time to be acknowledge and honor their service. Each event was well attended and had a positive effect on all those involved.
