The Stand Down is an all day event providing supplies and services to homeless Veterans, such as food, shelter, clothing, health screenings and VA Social Security benefits counseling. Veterans can also receive referrals to other assistance such as health care, housing solutions, employment, substance use treatment and mental health counseling. They are collaborative events, coordinated between local VA Medical Centers, government agencies, community-based homeless service providers, and other community partners. Village for Vets and Brentwood School are partnering to coordinate volunteers for this event. They will sign up approximately 300 volunteers to make the day a success.
