Many San Francisco veterans remain homeless or in transitional housing. Rudy Nevarez, a 66 year-old Vietnam veteran, has been living in transitional housing on Treasure Island for two years. The program, run by Swords to Plowshares, is intended to last two years. After that participants need to find their own housing. Nevarez applied for a HUD-VASH voucher several months ago but was turned down. Swords to Plowshares is letting him stay in the program for an extra 90 days, but then he needs to find another place to live.
