Mayor and Civic Groups Join to Help Link Veterans with Social Services
Mayor Gavin Newsom today joined the San Francisco VA Medical Center, Swords to Plowshares and other veterans’ service organizations for Veterans Connect to link San Francisco’s former members of the United States Armed Services with housing, education, jobs and other available social services. Veterans Connect is affiliated with the City’s successful Project Homeless Connect (PHC) efforts.
“We owe an incredible debt of gratitude to all those men and women who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces and sacrificed so much for our country,” said Mayor Newsom. “We must honor them not just in word but with action and support to help them transition out of military service and into a fulfilling civilian life here at home. Veterans Connect is one way we are renewing our commitment to our veterans by taking responsibility for reducing homelessness and poverty among them.” Read more.
