Homeless Veterans Stand Down
The 2017 Homeless Veterans Stand Down will mark the 10th year of our participation in this critical event. Each September, countless volunteers and community agencies come together to offer a wide variety of information and assistance to homeless veterans to help them transition from the streets and shelters back into the community. Please get the details on our EVENTS page - and join us in support of those who have served.
