Our executive director, Michael Blecker – a Vietnam veteran, has been with Swords to Plowshares since 1976. That speaks volumes. Michael, the board, and staff care deeply about the well-being of our clients and their colleagues. Swords upholds our commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion. Working at a community-based nonprofit that serves primarily homeless individuals requires compassion. Serving those who served requires dedication. When you join our team, you become part of a mission that is driven by the compassionate and dedicated people who work here.
We are deeply invested in the wellness of our team members. Our benefits are offered to most of our full-time and part-time employees.

We offer great wellness benefits including yoga and chair massage at work, personal education benefits, legal assistance, employee discounts, and more.
We offer generous paid time off to employees - 17 vacation or personal days + holidays + 12 sick days to start.
After one year of employment, we make quarterly contributions to your 403b retirement plan.
