Upstate Veterans Alliance Network (UVAN) is a collaboration of community organizations across Anderson, Greenville, and Spartanburg counties dedicated to creating stability in all aspects of the lives of the veterans, service members, and family members whom we serve. UVAN is composed of local area partners dedicated to working together to provide free services to the Veteran community. A steering committee made up of partner members from a variety of service areas and organizations serves to establish quarterly meetings for the at-large organization to include areas of focus and special speakers, initiate veteran-service events for partners to participate in as well as to develop and maintain a comprehensive veteran resource directory.
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. UVAN exists to increase awareness of services and referral criteria between and among veteran support organizations; to facilitate more efficient, effective referrals for veterans to meet their needs; to identify unmet needs and work to fill the gaps; and to foster partnerships between and among organizations
UVAN hosts quarterly at-large member meetings. These meetings are open to all UVAN partners, service providers, veterans, and other interested parties. These quarterly meetings will be held at venues, rotating among the counties served: Anderson, Greenville, and Spartanburg.
