Event Overview

We hold the San Diego Stand Down Clinic at the annual Homeless Veteran Stand down at San Diego High School. This is the original Stand Down, having held its first event in 1988. We are honored provide services to homeless veterans and their families at the event at the forefront of ending veteran homelessness.

Our volunteers served at this event in 2018 and 2019.
