Success Story: Rebecca

“Thanks to the peer-to-peer support of Upstate Warrior Solution. They have given me hope.” Rebecca continued, “I will turn my pain into power. This is an awesome group of peers to help me get through this. We are what we go through. By these peers helping me, by talking to me, they have helped me realize what I want to do in life. I’m very thankful for the peer-to-peer support of Upstate Warrior Solution. Y’all are exactly what I need to move forward. I’ll be forever grateful,” said Rebecca, a veteran spouse.


Rebecca was referred to UWS through FAVOR. Rebecca has attended the first meeting of BECOMING, a program within our Family Services program as well as been offered UWS services, such as initial information, education, employment, and healthcare. Our team has worked collaboratively to help Rebecca engage and thrive in the community.


Rebecca lives with her two daughters. She will start classes for her GED in April.
