Update: The 5th Annual North County Veterans Stand Down will now be held on September 16-19, 2021
This new date creates a better opportunity for more of our Veteran community to take advantage of everything Stand Down has to offer.
We are also working hard to enhance our guests experience based on feedback from all participants.
We look forward to sharing more exciting details in the coming months leading up to this year’s North County Veterans Stand Down.
To all guests and volunteers, we will be reaching out shortly with further details.
A message from our president and chairman can be found here.
In January 2019 during the annual Point-In-Time Count, 37,085 homeless Veterans across the United States were counted.
With just under 11,000, California easily topped all states with the most homeless Veterans in the country with the next being Florida, just over 2,472.
While the overall number of homeless Veterans did go down in America, San Diego City and County has the second largest homeless Veteran population, second to Los Angeles.
The North County Stand Down is an event for all Veterans regardless of housing, employment, and financial status.
