Stand Down was founded by two veterans, Roy Foster and Donald Reed, with a vision to help their brothers
in arms. They began to make their dream a reality when they founded Faith*Hope*Love*Charity, Inc.
(FHLC, Inc.) in 1994. In May 2000 Stand Down opened its doors and it has flourished since.

It is our honor to provide an opportunity for these men who have served our country to regain
their strength and dignity and to return to productive lives. We are proud to say that more
than 2,000 veterans have received support from this program since its inception.

It is our commitment to continue this effort & grow, as the need is great. As part of
this we are opening the Village of Valor, a permanent supportive housing community
for veterans & veteran families. Click below to visit the Village of Valor website.
