“My achievements at Stand Down have changed my life and also me. I have been in different programs, but the Stand Down system is totally different in many ways. Their staff is so helpful and gives their time to us.” – Charles, U.S. Army Supply Clerk 1971-1972

We offer a short-term assistance program with a focus on recovery so that our veterans can transition to a stable future.

- Individual counseling
- Life skills training
- Job readiness classes
Donate to Support Veterans at Stand Down House
In the Stand Down House, the veteran is able to focus on recovery and healing without the concerns of daily living or responsibilities. In order to provide these services ongoing, we need monetary donations to keep the service free to our veterans. To be part of helping our veteran community, donate to the Stand Down House today.
The Stand Down House has provided over 11,000 sheltered nights since its opening.
