What We Have Accomplished

The Impact We Make By The Numbers

1300+

Veterans & their Familes Served

We provide all Veterans, homeless or in need, with the tools and resources to be self-sustaining members of society. 100 of these Veterans gained permanent housing.

800+

Eye Glasses

Eyeglasses were made and distributed on site along with eye exams.

$650,000+

Court Fines Forgiven

Fines cleared for infractions such as loitering, camping, or sleeping in your car. This enables Veterans to get a job and be able to pay for their living expenses.

$150,000+

Dental Work Provided

With the support of various organizations and business, we have been able to provide Veterans with necessary dental work at no expense to them.

North County Veteran Stand Down is a four-day event in Vista, California, that enables homeless veterans to receive much-needed services in a safe, friendly, drug-free and secure environment.
