In February of 2018, Upstate Warrior Solution (UWS) received a phone call from a social worker at the VA who referred an Army veteran to our Greenville Office Director for assistance with legal and housing issues. This veteran served twelve years in the Army and was medically retired a few years ago. Around the same time that this veteran called, a local furniture store called our office stating they had some gently damaged furniture. We connected the store with this veteran, who had recently been housed, and they delivered the furniture to this veteran’s new home. In addition, we helped this veteran by referring him to SC Legal, along with continuing to work with the VA for additional resources and further assistance. This veteran’s quality of life has improved significantly and he is doing much better. This case is an example of how we can impact the veterans in our community by leveraging our local partnerships. When this is done successfully, we are able to greatly improve a warrior’s quality of life.
