Thousands of veterans and their families have received assistance through our Stand Down event since it began in 2006. The event provides counseling & substance abuse referrals, employment & training, healthcare services, housing resources, legal services, wellness activities, and a career fair. Veterans and their families are also be able to receive FREE clothing, meals, haircuts, and personal care items. Giveaways and Raffle Items are also given out.
The Stand Down is open to homeless and in-need veterans and their families. All services and items are provided free of charge. Veterans should bring a DD-214 or VA card as proof of veteran status.
Stand Down is a term that originated during the Vietnam War used to describe the practice of removing combat troops from the field and taking care of their basic needs in a safe area. According to the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans, the Stand Down was “a safe retreat for units returning from combat operations” where troops had access to clean uniforms, warm meals, medical and dental care, mail, and camaraderie, all in a safe environment.
See how we help veterans in need and their families each year at our annual Stand Down!
