” I was physically and mentally broken with no where to go. Stand Down provided me a safe and secure environment, in which I could start my journey of recovery and a sober life. A new RESPECT for myself and others.” – Richard, U.S. Navy Aviation Storekeeper (USS Boxer LPH-4) 1966-1969
The First Step for Veterans in Need
First Stop Veterans’ Resource Center
The First Stop Veterans Resource Center serves as the “hub” for veterans’ services in Palm Beach County. The center conducts outreach, engagement and referral activities for veterans and OIF/OEF military personnel and their family members – before, during and after the service members’ deployment.
Services Through First Stop Veterans’ Resource Center:
- Emergency financial aid
- Assistance for emergency housing
- VA/SSA benefit information
- Employment assistance
- Case management
Donate to First Stop Veterans Resource Center
It is not always the veteran that is able to reach out for help. Stand Down has outreach efforts which help us identify the veterans that are at risk and allow us to offer them a viable solution to their issues. This does not happen without donations and volunteers. To help us continue to help every veteran that needs help, donate today.
Since opening the First Stop Veterans Resource Center over 3,500 veterans and their families have been assisted.
