The Rupert Huse Veteran Center will offer life-changing resources to countless veterans and their families
Through the RHVC, warriors will gain direct access to veteran-centric tenants and broader access to Upstate Warrior Solution’s network of community partners. This one-stop shop approach will enable veterans and their families to easily connect with the resources and services they need to thrive.
WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT & HOUSING STABILITY
Helping our veterans find a flourishing career and a place to call home.
In veterans’ pursuit of economic stability and home ownership, the RHVC will offer in-building access to experts in VA home loans, real estate agents, as well as community and federal resources for financial literacy. In addition to the UWS Employment Program offerings, physical cubicle space and conference room space will also be available for veterans to work, hold business meetings, network, and collaborate.
RESOURCES FOR HEALTH & EMOTIONAL WELL-BEING
Exercise for the minds, bodies, and souls of our veterans and their families.
The reach of the RHVC’s resources and programs will extend beyond veterans. The center will host peer group gatherings and activities for veteran spouses, children, as well as bereavement support for families of deceased veterans. As the emotional well-being of our veterans is of the utmost importance, resources for mental and behavioral health will be readily available. In addition to the UWS Outdoor Recreation Program offerings in collaboration with Prisma Health, an RHVC gym membership and fitness classes will also be available.
INNOVATION & ENRICHMENT THROUGH ARTS & COMMUNITY
Providing our veterans one-of-a-kind opportunities to lead purpose-filled lives.
The RHVC will be the first of its kind in the state. In addition to the many innovative building elements and programs, an in-building creative art studio will provide an outlet for coping with PTSD and for connecting with others in the community. The conference and event space, available for general use, will allow for engaging, networking, and bonding – further cultivating veteran integration with the Upstate community.
These offerings will be made possible, thanks to the generosity of our gracious donors.
