Since 2001, the Maricopa County StandDown, coordinated by the Arizona Housing Coalition’s Arizona Veterans StandDown Alliance, has served thousands of U.S. military veterans, and their families, experiencing or at risk of homelessness in our state’s capital. Growing to one of the largest events of its kind in the country, more than 2,000 veterans were served at StandDown events in 2019, connecting them to critical supportive services to help them gain and maintain their health and housing stability.
A StandDown event is a community-based resource fair where organizations come together to provide to serve veterans and their families by connecting them with critical supportive services to help them gain and maintain housing stability. ‘Stand Down‘ is a military term that refers to the brief period of time given to a soldier to leave an active combat area in order to rest and regain strength before returning to battle.
