Background Information about the Program

Background Information about the Program

Funded by the Office of Economic and Workforce Development (OEWD), nonprofit veteran service organization Swords to Plowshares provides wrap-around services to over 3,000 veterans living in the San Francisco Bay Area each year. Swords to Plowshares is committed to helping veterans break through the cultural, educational, psychological and economic barriers often faced in the transition to the civilian world.

Working closely with OEWD, Swords to Plowshares operates as a Veterans Neighborhood Access Point and offers employment events such as career fairs, employment spotlights, and hiring events. Swords to Plowshares focuses on matching job opportunities that lead to careers with each veteran's skills, education and experience.
