About Upstate Warrior Solution (UWS):



The Upstate Warrior Solution mission is to CONNECT warriors and their family members to resources and opportunities, LEAD them through the process of self-empowerment, and INSPIRE the community to embrace local warriors and their family members as valued neighbors and friends. We offer supportive services to all Upstate warriors and their family members. We use the term “warrior” because we also serve Reservists, National Guard, and active duty, regardless of military branch, nature of discharge, or current life situation.


If you are an Upstate warrior or family member, we want to connect with you and help you thrive in our community. Whatever your current need may be – employment, navigating VA benefits, or simply meeting other warriors and military families in the Upstate – we want to support you.

Our work is built on face-to-face outreach and case coordination. Our warrior advocates will help assess your current areas of need, connect you to our network of community resources, and help you generate goals and actionable steps towards your next mission in life.

Upstate Warrior Solution was founded in response to these needs in the community.

UWS received its incorporation in 2012 through the South Carolina Secretary of State’s office and was formally recognized as a 501(c)3 organization in 2013. To better meet demand and increase the capacity to serve warriors across the Upstate, UWS now has three office locations in Greenville, Clemson, and Spartanburg.
