The grant is part of a $60 million national program by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to help 22,000 low-income veterans and their families over the next year.
Shelter Network works with the VA to serve homeless veterans at its adult shelter in Redwood City and four family facilities.
In addition to food and board, Shelter Network helps with job and housing searches, conducts life-skills workshops, and provides medical and mental health services. Shelter Network also finances support services such as childcare, transportation and rental assistance.
