stand-down-copyStand Down represents a unique, community-based response to a human need not being met by traditional means.

Stand Down
is a community of volunteers and participants brought together in a spirit of caring and respect to inspire hope and invigorate the will of homeless veterans, veterans at risk for homelessness and veterans in need. The major goal is to provide a vast array of opportunities, services and warm inviting person-to-person contact, so each veteran can muster the individual, internal energy and initiative needed to renew and/or rebuild his or her life.

Changes in individual lives, as well as Community Awareness and Commitment, are the most enduring outcomes of Stand Down.
