VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System
2019 Veteran Stand Down
Stand Downs are typically one- to three-day events providing supplies and services
to homeless Veterans, such as food, shelter, clothing, health screenings and
VA Social Security benefits counseling. Veterans can also receive referrals to other
assistance such as health care, housing solutions, employment, substance use treatment and mental health counseling. They are collaborative events, coordinated between local VA Medical Centers, other government agencies and community-based homeless service providers.
