Our three day Stand Down events serve as a one stop destination for the homeless Veterans of our community to receive the services and support that they so desperately need.  At these events we provide our Veterans relief from the elements by providing temporary shelter, warm bedding, and hot meals.  With their basic necessities of shelter and food being met,  they can focus on working with our providers outlined below to begin their journey out of homelessness:

  • Medical and first aid services

  • Dental services

  • Vision and chiropractic services

  • Housing referral services

  • Mental health counseling and P.T.S.D. services

  • Employment aid and job counseling 

  • Legal support and Court services 

  • DMV

  • Social Security benefits 

  • VA benefits


In addition to these array of resources our three day Stand Down’s provide camaraderie and companionship for our homeless Veterans.  At these events they are surrounded by their fellow Veterans who wish to provide a hand up not a hand out.  


Our single day Stand Downs provide all of the inclusive support services of our full three day Stand Downs with a focus on working within specific regions within our community.  These more mobile Stand Downs can be setup onsite at the locations of our community partners (food banks, churches and houses of worship, and community resource offices) who can provide future onsite services to our regions Veterans.
