We're vets helping vets.
Swords to Plowshares is a Bay Area-based nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting all veterans every step of the way. Founded in 1974 by six Vietnam veterans, Swords has a mission 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 services are free of charge. They include: case management, counseling, support groups, emergency housing, food assistance, rental support, supportive housing, vocational training, employment services, and legal support to access VA benefits.
