Swords to Plowshares is a community-based, not-for-profit veteran service organization that provides wrap-around care to more than 2,000 veterans in the San Francisco Bay Area each year.

We provide services ranging from housing, employment and training, legal services, and social services. We are committed to helping veterans break through the cultural, educational, psychological and economic barriers they often face in their transition to the civilian world.

Comments on the Military and Business Ownership...

Michael Blecker is a Vietnam Veteran has been associated with Swords to Plowshares since 1976, only two years after it was started in 1974 by six VISTA veterans who were volunteers at the Veterans Administration in San Francisco. The founders wanted to help their peers and themselves through the difficult readjustment to civilian life. They saw that they could fill in niche gaps of services for veterans that the VA wasn't covering at the time. Thus the motto of "vets helping vets" was born.
