You have the power to help prevent and end Veteran homelessness in your community. Learn how.

Stand Downs are typically one- to three-day events providing supplies and services to homeless Veterans, such as food, shelter, clothing, health screenings and VA Social Security benefits counseling.

They are collaborative events, coordinated between local VA Medical Centers, other government agencies and community-based homeless service providers.
