    I incendentally 'stumbled' across SVBRC through Interfaith Community Service Center in Oceanside by virtue of reintergration because of a bad experience I had encountered with the government as a civil service employee. As I explained my situation to Rob Heinlein of ICS, he gave me hope by giving a copy of Albert Renteria's business card and telling me to call him because it would be a good resource for me. 

    Even though the 'rug had been pulled from underneath me' as I explained to Albert it was his attentiveness that compelled me to open & share certain aspects of my life with him, especially with regards to being a veteran. Albert seemed very sincere & inquisitive, which had me feel comfortable enough to 'vent' my frustations with ease.

    I felt & still feel very disapointed with parts of the VA system in which "help" is not always available when one needs it. This ranges from psychological & emotional support to food assistance as well. I find that there are very few, if any, geniune organizations (that also includes churches & 'foundations') which pride themselves on their establishment in "supporting" veterans, but with very little to offer in terms of direct assistance.

    Sometimes veterans are ignored and even dismissed altogether in their greatest moment of need for various reasons or excuses, which is sad commentary on this society as a whole. After serving our country and some of us risking our lives all in the name of "freedom" it's no wonder more help is not available, but that goes without saying because it is matter of showing us that they care rather then just telling us with very little evidence to support their claim.

    However, I am thankful that those establishments, such as ICS & SVBRC, have shown their support and taken action in providing assistance with what resources have been available or at least pointed me in the direction by which I am able to connect with others for help.

    I appreciate Albert Renteria and all the learner's availibilty in which has made a positive impact thus far in my life. I hope that this organization will continue to grow & expand in a way that it will reach the entire U.S. and that it thrives in manner that will be able to directly give in a means in which can effectively contribute to the immediate needs of the veteran.

Welcoming home our men and women doesn't end after the crowd disperses, it MUST continue on for the life of the Veteran! They've served us, now we will serve them with programs that work so they reintegrate into society.

We are a national public benefit nonprofit organization that educates American Communities about best practices to serve Veterans.  We honor their service by empowering Veterans to apply their training and skills to successfully transition to productive careers and enterprises.

We provide free vocational training 24/7 to all of our members through our website, in addition to local events.  We believe the tenet that American Communities are the ultimate beneficiaries when Veterans claim their benefits and invest in productive endeavors.

The SWVBRC enlists the support of members of local Communities like you to increase Veteran awareness of the value of obtaining a VA card and receiving earned benefits.

Sponsorships, donations, volunteers and support from communities like yours enable us to reach out to Veterans and empower them to transition back into successful, productive enterprises that ultimately benefit all Americans and support future generations.
