Upstate Warrior Solution is a community-based, nonprofit organization serving warriors and their families in the Upstate of South Carolina. We CONNECT warriors to the resources they need and LEAD them through the process of self-empowerment. Knowing that warriors bring a wealth of skills and knowledge to the Upstate, we seek to INSPIRE the community to embrace them as valuable neighbors.
We offer supportive services to all Upstate warriors and their family members. We use the term “warrior” because we also serve Reservists, National Guard, and active duty, regardless of military branch, nature of discharge, or current life situation.
If you are an Upstate warrior or family member, we want to connect with you and help you thrive in our community. Whatever your current need may be – employment, navigating VA benefits, or simply meeting other warriors and military families in the Upstate – we want to support you.
Our work is built on face-to-face outreach and case coordination. Our warrior advocates will help assess your current areas of need, connect you to our network of community resources, and help you generate goals and actionable steps towards your next mission in life.
Since our inception in 2013, we have helped over 6,470 unique warriors and their families, working with them and community partners to assist with housing, employment, healthcare, education, and family support services.
We have made great strides to improve community-based care for warriors in the Upstate. However, we know the need is still great. There are over 100,000 veterans living in the Upstate, and our goal is to connect with each one of them. We invite every member of the Upstate community to become part of the solution.

“I NEEDED Upstate Warrior Solution’s help, and through their effort to turn over every rock, follow up on every lead, they helped me get to a place I felt was all but impossible a few short months ago.” – Tanner C., USAF ’94-‘98
