In 2017, The Home Depot Foundation awarded Swords to Plowshares $155,240 to help us build out much needed community space at one of our supportive housing sites, the Fairfax, for 41 formerly chronically homeless veterans.
After a long and difficult construction process, Swords to Plowshares is pleased to announce that our community space is nearly built and ready for residents to use for engagement, congregate meals, and ongoing therapy groups. The Home Depot Foundation has been a champion for organizations that develop and provide housing for homeless veterans. Our partnership with The Home Depot Foundation began in 2012 and has been instrumental in supporting our efforts to provide safe and stable housing for homeless veterans.
It is because of supporters like The Home Depot Foundation, with a strong commitment to housing veterans, that we can prevent and end homelessness among the men and women who served our country.

The brand new kitchen was the first project completed by the Home Depot Foundation. The residents will have access to a new, gender-neutral restroom adjacent to the kitchen and group space.
