February 3-5, U.S.VETS is teaming up with the Arizona Coalition to End Homelessness (AZCEH) to put on The Arizona StandDown. It is the state’s largest, singular outreach event for homeless veterans and relies upon contributions from the public to support over 1,000 veterans to gain access to shelter, services and healthcare in a single weekend. The event has experienced tremendous growth over the past 4 years rising from 502 homeless and at-risk veterans served in 2008 to 1,048 in 2011. Anticipating continued growth, preparations are underway to deliver needed resources to approximately 1,200 homeless and at-risk veterans this February 3-5, 2012 at the Veterans’ Memorial Coliseum located on the Arizona State Fairgrounds.
AZCEH provides limited fiduciary services for the Arizona Veterans StandDown Coalition, an unincorporated association of 30+ member agencies.
