Military and Veterans Service Alliance
of the Lowcountry South

Home Page

The Military and Veterans Service Alliance (MAVSA) of the Lowcountry exists to provide a single source of information by which a military service person, veteran, retiree, or family member thereof can go for information and help in resolving problems relating to health, both physical and mental, housing, food, clothing, transportation, education, etc.  The alliance also provides a source of information by which veterans can associate themselves with other veterans in the various organizations that exist throughout the Lowcountry.

The current population, as of July 2016, of Beaufort County, South Carolina, is approximately 183,000.  Of that number there are approximately 20,000 veterans, 6,500 active duty service people, and 5,400 Marine recruits.  Of the 20,000 veterans there is a significant number of military retirees.  There are currently 8,200 veterans between the ages of 65 and 84 living in Beaufort County.  The aging population of those veterans, particularly south of the Broad River, creates an increasing need for community services.  MAVSA endeavors to meet that need.

MAVSA was founded in April 2013 through collaborative efforts between the Beaufort County branch of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) and the Honor Our Heroes Foundation.  For more information about MAVSA contact any of our officers by phone/email or complete the online form on the contact us page.
