Swords to Plowshares has operated successful stabilization and permanent supportive housing programs for more than two decades. At any given time, we have the capacity to house over 400 veterans, including 22 veterans with families, from all walks of life and generations of military service.
We operate seven different housing sites with multiple points of entry to address the many barriers veterans face on their path toward self-sufficiency. We offer the support services that improve outcomes, including Rapid Re-housing services, eviction protection, and money management programs to help keep veterans housed.
Our housing sites allow for a peaceful lifestyle, therapeutic to veterans who are trying to stabilize their lives. Sobriety, health improvement, and reintegration to society after periods of homelessness, addiction, incarceration and other factors are the main goals at our housing sites.
Swords to Plowshares recognizes that veterans with histories of chronic homelessness require wraparound care to stabilize their lives and have access to resources needed to become self-sufficient. Our five permanent supportive housing sites offer on-site mental health counseling, substance abuse counseling, support groups, educational programs, and workshops and community activities in an autonomous living environment coupled with a harm reduction model of engagement for our residents. All facilities have on-site property management staff and program staff available for any needs that arise.
If you or someone you know is a homeless veteran in need of supportive housing, Swords to Plowshares provides unique and outstanding housing options and supportive services.

An intake counselor can help veterans understand the process to obtain housing within Swords to Plowshares.
