A Recent Stand Down Team
The first Stand Down was organized in 1988 by a group of Vietnam Veterans in San Diego.

Next Stand Down: Saturday, September 10, 2016
Stand Downs are one part of the Department of Veterans Affairs’ efforts to
provide services to homeless veterans. Stand Downs are typically one to
three day events providing services to homeless Veterans such as food, shelter,
clothing, health screenings, VA and Social Security benefits counseling, and
referrals to a variety of other necessary services, such as housing, employment
and substance abuse treatment. Stand Downs are collaborative events,
coordinated between local VAs, other government agencies, and community agencies
who serve the homeless.
