Veterans in the Bay Area can get help with utilities and rent through the St. Vincent de Paul "CARES" program.
The program just received more than $2 million from Veterans Affairs to support veterans. You have to prove loss of income because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and have to be below the median income.
The program can help with rent, but not mortgages. However, homeowners can qualify for utility assistance.
