War causes wounds and suffering that last beyond the battlefield. Swords to Plowshares’ mission is to heal the wounds of war, to restore dignity, hope, and self-sufficiency to all veterans in need, and to prevent and end homelessness and poverty among veterans.
All veterans will have access to the care and services they need to rebuild their lives.
Our model of care is based on the philosophy that the obstacles veterans face — including homelessness, unemployment and disability — are interrelated and require an integrated network of support.
We understand the issues veterans face - including homelessness, unemployment, disability, and health - are interconnected and require wrap-around support.
Access to healthcare, counseling, critical needs, and a community of support is critical for veterans trying to turn their life around.Learn about Health & Wellness
