Upstate Veterans Alliance Network (UVAN) is a collaboration of 200 community organizations across 10 counties of Upstate South Carolina. In coordination with the South Carolina Department of Veterans Affairs, we are dedicated to creating stability in all aspects of the lives of the Veterans and Family Members that we serve. As a grateful community, we owe them no less.
As one of four Community Veteran Engagement Boards (CVEB) in the state, UVAN brings local veteran providers together with VA leadership. Together, we help the VA have a “boots on the ground” perspective at the local level.
The UVAN Steering Committee promotes and supports opportunities to benefit veterans and the community by focusing on issues surrounding all areas regarding veterans’ quality of life: health and wellness, basic needs assistance, educational and vocational training, employment, and continued support. The committee also initiates veteran-service events for partners to participate in and works to develop and maintain a comprehensive veteran resource directory.

- Spring: Panel Discussion (veteran-related topic)
- Summer: Networking Event
- Fall: Legislative Update
- Winter: Inspirational Speaker
