These two gentlemen have been selflessly helping and making themselves more than available to help with every bit of the process getting housing and even employment, I am blessed
Great service for veterans. Helps with medical, legal, mail, food, and shelter. Just drop by. Even if you have a dishonorable discharge maybe the upgrade it or worst case scenario at least you can get a free coffee
Truly an amazing organization, with the resources, experience, and compassion that our homeless, disabled, or disadvantaged veterans need, in order to reclaim a life of dignity, self respect, and pride that so many of us are in desperate need of. If you're a veteran, and having any sort of issue that you feel would be best served with the assistance of an advocate, then don't waste time. Get with Swords to Plowshares right away. You'll be glad you did 💜
This is one of the oldest veterans groups here in San Francisco, having been operational since the seventies. Here you can get assistance with finding housing, free legal services (but only for upgrading your discharge rating or filing a claim with the VA), substance abuse and mental health referrals, addresses of shelters, etc. And they usually have free bagels and coffee in the mornings, so show up early!
This place helped me get housing. It helped me with a lot of services. They serve lunch here and play movies and have groups and classes. A lot of case managers here too. This is where I get my mail. Love you guys! Thanks for your community service.
