” For our veterans who have lost everything and are living on the streets of San Diego, this year’s Stand Down coordinated by VVSD, will once again provide an opportunity for them to access services, connect with the community, restore hope, and allow them to “Stand Down” for a weekend.”

Kimberly Mitchell, VVSD President & CEO

 

“Stand Down is a place of miracles, if you believe in such; a place where a veteran suddenly thrust into homelessness can find an immediate solution and the same place where a chronically homeless person for more than 15 years can find a transitional place of recovery, treatment, education and training and 9 months later be reunited with his family in his own apartment.”

-Darcy Pavich, VVSD Chaplain and Stand Down Director
