Residential Center for Veterans
Opening its doors in November 2005, the American GI Forum’s Residential Center for Veterans offers a mix of services including job counseling, employment services, chemical dependency counseling, daily meal service, and community reintegration programs. The American GI Forum does not believe in “warehousing” individuals, but instead, it tailors a plan of action for each veteran client to support their transformation with self-sufficiency as the ultimate objective.
All interested Veterans* should report to the Veteran Service Center at 611 N Flores for an eligibility assessment. Please bring any identifying documents that you have (drivers license, DD214 if available). This program has sleeping quarters for single adult Veterans (bunk beds in bays, 5 men’s bays and 1 women’s bay). Homeless Veterans with discharges other than Honorable or General may apply for transitional housing (Humanitarian) *.
About the Center
The renovation of a former warehouse to create 80 transitional beds and 60 single room apartments (SRO’s) was a multi-million dollar challenge that was accomplished through the leadership of the American GI Forum and the invaluable financial support of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), the USAA Foundation, and the City of San Antonio. The American GI Forum NVOP provided approximately one-third of the construction funding for the building of this facility.
