About the Stand Down

The Stand Down is an event that is held in cities all over the nation to provide food, clothing, services and referrals to homeless veterans. The name “Stand Down” comes from a term used in times of war. Exhausted combat units requiring time to rest and recover were removed from the battlefields to a place of relative security and safety. Today, Stand Down refers to a grassroots, community-based intervention program designed to help the nation’s estimated 60,000 homeless veterans “combat” life on the streets.

U.S.VETS – Inland Empire is hosting Riverside County’s first annual Veterans Stand Down, in conjunction with the Veterans Assistance Leadership of Riverside County (VALOR). It will be held October 17, 2014 at the Perris Fairgrounds- Harrison Hall, 18700 Lake Perris Drive from 8:00am-5:00pm. The event will bring comprehensive services to homeless and at-risk veterans under one roof. Services will include housing, employment, medical and dental care, clothing, hot meals, benefits, resources, haircuts and showers, and much more. The goal of the Stand Down is to connect veterans with vital resources.
