Review for Swords to Plowshares, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

for forty years Swords has been providing much needed services to our most needy veterans. Their multifaceted approach is unique, but has proven to be very successful. Providing a drop in facility, legal assistance, employment and training services and nearly 500 apartment units to accommodate chronically homeless vets; Swords also has a strong advocacy role that, even though they are a community based organization, they have a national voice.

Review for Swords to Plowshares, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Swords is a phenomenal organization providing multi-faceted support to those very people who have put their lives on the line for their country. Over the last several years a lot of media attention has been focused on our veterans and still so many are looking for work, looking for housing, suffering from PTSD and other maladies or living on the streets. Swords , as a community based non-profit, has, for that last 40 years, been there for our vets, providing a drop in facility were they can get a variety of services to include a mental health assessment, legal council to help them receive their earned benefits from the VA and help with job hunting and housing. Swords also provides housing for nearly 500 formerly homeless or at risk veterans. Swords to Plowshares is a dynamic and very important organization that actually provides a real service for our veterans.
