If you are a San Francisco resident seeking help with VA benefits or a discharge upgrade, we can help. Please contact us at 415.727.VETS or firstname.lastname@example.org.
All San Francisco veterans are eligible for a free one-time consultation with our attorneys, regardless of discharge status, the era of service, or length of service.
Please note – We do not guarantee representation or ongoing assistance. We hope to return to our regular drop-in hours soon where all veterans who can attend are welcome.
We are limiting all group activities and non-essential services in our housing programs. During this period, we will have Front Desk staff, maintenance staff & janitorial staff, and mental health staff only on a regular basis. Case management will be limited. Meal services in our programs will continue, but will be boxed prepared meals. We are also providing residents with additional resources for groceries and boxed meals.
Our employment services have been uninterrupted during this time, however, job training programs have been limited. If you need to contact us please email at email@example.com. Currently our office hours are limited and by appointment only. If you are already enrolled with our E&T services, please contact your E&T Employment Specialist or Job Developer directly.
Please note that things are changing rapidly and business hours and available services are subject to change.
