THE STORY:

For 36 years, Swords to Plowshares' legal team has helped thousands of veterans access earned VA benefits and healthcare, while our housing, social services and employment teams provide wrap-around care. Our challenge to cut the red tape and get veterans on their feet has never been greater, and we are working hard to ensure that no veteran falls into chronic homelessness and poverty while waiting for Washington to fix the VA backlog.  Help us help our vets on the ground.

 

We all know that the VA benefits system is broken. Today’s veterans needlessly suffer while they are forced to wait months, often years, to access the benefits they rightfully earned and rely on for survival. It is time we remove the burden on the veteran, reduce wait times and finally eliminate the backlog of nearly 1 million disability claims. In no other area, in or out of government, would this wait time be acceptable. So why is it okay for the men and women who bravely served our country? After fighting on the battlefield and sustaining life-long injuries, veterans should not be shortchanged access to their benefits.
