Upstate Warrior Solution is a community based not-for-profit organization that generates quality of life solutions for Upstate veterans, active duty, National Guard, and Reserve warriors and their families. UWS services span the following counties in the Upstate: Greenville, Spartanburg, Anderson, Oconee, and Pickens.
The UWS model is centralized around face to face outreach to the warrior community, and service lines include Mentorship, Healthcare and Benefits, Education and Training, Housing, and Employment. The model does NOT facilitate handouts, but dictates that warrior walk alongside his or her peer mentor, program manager, or social worker in a team environment to generate goals and actionable solutions. UWS adheres to the Four Step Plan of Community Integration for serving the warrior community:
Connect – Locate and link warriors and their families to the UWS network of resources
Educate – Inform warriors of services and opportunities available to them
Advocate – Ensure warriors receive the support they have earned via peer and social work care coordination
Collaborate – Work with partners on all levels in the community to facilitate total warrior care
The majority of UWS staff and volunteers are military veterans, and many have combat experience from Iraq and Afghanistan. These dedicated men and women stand ready to serve our warriors and family across the Upstate!
