BENEFITING: Swords to Plowshares
I've been working with Swords to Plowshares since 1992. They do important work with homeless veterans by providing a full array of services. Veterans who have been at the depths of despair, with mental and physical illness, cycling in and out of emergency rooms, treatment programs and jail, are helped by talented and committed staff--including veterans and former clients--to stabilize their lives, secure safe housing, reconnect with family members, get the veterans benefits they earned in the military and live with the dignity and respect they deserve. Oh that our nation would stop going to war and blithely ignoring the enormous consequences to individuals and families of such actions.
