"Stand Down Development"

March 3, 2014


Starting with the first Stand Down in San Diego in 1988, Stand Down events have continued the mission of providing a “hand up, not hand out” to homeless veterans in local communities. Learn how to contribute to this mission by supporting a Stand Down in your community.

On March 3 at 2:00 p.m. EST, NCHV’s TA Center hosted a webinar training on the Stand Down program, focusing on an introduction to Stand Down development and planning. This training provided an introduction to Stand Downs, an overview of the different types and classifications of Stand Down events, and an outline of the major partners necessary for a successful event.

Participants learned where to find more information on local events and about the various guidebooks and tools available to community partners. This training provided the foundation for the “Stand Down Financing” webinar on March 10.

HVRP grantees and their partners interested in learning more about development of a Stand Down were encouraged to participate in this training. Community partners wanting to support local Stand Down events and current Stand Down organizers expanding or improving existing events were also encouraged to participate.
