With experience as a community-based nonprofit organization dating back to 1974, Swords to Plowshares has pioneered the most coordinated model of care for veterans in the country.
Our innovative programs, which have evolved to meet the changing needs of veterans, are a national model for helping veterans to lead stable and healthy lives.
Founded in 1974, Swords to Plowshares has a long track record of success helping veterans lead stable and healthy lives, Swords to Plowshares is recognized for our expert leadership and continued dedication to improving the systems that our veterans rely on. We advocate for reform at the state, local and national level to increase access to care, and improve services for all veterans and their families.
Over the years the name Swords to Plowshares has become synonymous with excellence in serving veterans in need, a highly visible yet dramatically underserved population. We developed a model of coordinated care based on the philosophy that the many obstacles veterans face-including homelessness, unemployment and disability-are interrelated and require an integrated network of support.
