Who Are We?
United Warrior Services began in 2016 as a group of Veterans raising money for local therapy Programs to honor our brother that took his own life in 2015.
We had no idea what we were doing would become something more.
Later, as we lost more and more friends and family to suicide, what began as a group of friends working together to make a small difference, became the motivating force behind everything UWS has done to date.
Originally, 3 Veterans and friends came together to form UWS. We could not stand idly by while every day more and more of our family were lost. Taking action has not been easy, but luckily we have found support both from the original fundraising group, other Veterans, and the community at large.
Our approach is to get Veterans out of their current environment and into nature. We take Veterans out into the wilderness away from Cell Signal, daily distractions, and stressors. This places them in an environment that fosters openness and brings an element of informal counseling, guided by Crisis Counselors to improve Veteran Mental States.
We are all Volunteers and do this in our free time. No one at UWS takes a paycheck or any kind of compensation.
We do this because we care.
