Thank you to all who attended, volunteered and donated to the 5th Annual North County Veterans Stand Down which took place on September 16-19, 2021
We will be updating the site shortly with all the images from this year and information on our next Stand Down in 2022.
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.
