In the summer of 2020, Warriors Set Free embarked on a journey of seeking God’s guidance regarding our expansion to better serve veterans in need. Over the course of the following year, one location consistently emerged as a strong contender: Atlanta, Georgia. This decision was fueled by the fact that Georgia boasts a staggering population of over 616,000 veterans, with several active-duty bases within its borders.
In December 2021, Warriors Set Free took its first concrete step towards establishing a presence in Georgia by appointing our inaugural full-time ministry outreach position. Building upon this foundation, in July 2023, we proudly welcomed Eric Brew, a distinguished veteran with 25 years of active service in the USA, as the Director of Warriors Set Free Georgia. This strategic move marks a significant milestone in our mission to extend our support network to the veterans of Georgia, demonstrating our commitment to making a lasting impact in the state.
At VEO, we offer a healing campus environment that allows veterans to rebuild their lives. Our mission is to empower veterans along their journey to self-sufficiency.

An estimated 2000 veterans throughout Georgia have little access to the resources they need for daily living. There are many invisible wounds that affect veterans, including post-traumatic stress disorder, substance abuse, depression, and anxiety – all of which can lead to homelessness.
At Camp Southern Groups, we are committed to serving the men and women who have fought to protect our country. Warrior Week and Warrior PATHH specifically care for the health and wellbeing of post-9/11 veterans while providing the necessary support in their transition to life after military service. Both are provided at no cost to veterans.

VETLANTA is a club operated exclusively for veteran social and business networking and community service purposes.
Their purpose is to help veterans get connected to the resources and community they need. Focus on network with Atlanta area businesses (including non-profits, education institutions, government agencies), to find those organizations with like-minded values who may have opportunities for veterans.
To maximize our impact on efforts, VETLANTA may become involved with local volunteer opportunities in order to facilitate camaraderie and give veterans a chance to network effectively.
Trading in a uniform for civilian clothes is never easy. And for the Warriors who don’t have support, it can be overwhelming. Based in Atlanta, The Warrior Alliance is on a mission to simplify this major life transition.
