Stand Down are one part of the Department of Veterans Affairs’ efforts to provide services to veterans. Stand Downs are typically one day events providing services to Veterans such as food, shelter, clothing, health screenings, VA and Social Security benefits counseling, and referrals to a variety of other necessary services. These include services such as housing, employment and substance abuse treatment.

Stand Down is a program that was conceived from the ground up specifically for Veterans. It is designed to transform the despair and immobility of into the momentum necessary to get into recovery, to resolve legal issues, to seek employment, to access health services and benefits, to reconnect with the community and to get off the streets.

After over 25 years of hosting Stand Downs in Columbus Ohio, we have expanded our services to meet the needs of all Veterans. This is in response to the ever changing challenges facing our Veterans. All Veterans are welcomed to Central Ohio Veteran Stand Down held on Tuesday, October 15th!
