Service Centers

Our Service Centers provide critical care to veteran clients, especially homeless, low-income and at-risk veterans. They are the main points of entry to access our programs and services in San Francisco and Oakland.

Our case managers and intake staff help stabilize veterans with crisis intervention, mental health assessments and treatment referrals, case management, in-house and community referrals, assistance securing emergency and permanent housing, and host of other critical needs. We first address veterans’ immediate needs, with such things as restoring medications or benefits, and continue to longer-range planning and services that will enable them to improve their health, economic and housing stability, and overall well-being so they can live independently in the community.

ALL veterans are welcome at Swords to Plowshares regardless of their length of service or military discharge status.
