Through peer to peer social support and mentoring, a veteran finds the same camaraderie once thought lost. Veterans were not alone in their time of service, and should not have to be alone now. Our annual culminating event, the Seattle Stand Down, is committed to assisting military veterans and their families in every aspect of their transition from military to civilian life; whether they just became a veteran or have been one for a long time. The Seattle Stand Down provides a place where veterans can have "one stop" access to various community and Veterans Affairs (federal, state and county) social services, focusing primarily on those veterans and families that are either homeless or at-risk of becoming homeless.
Keeping with the spirit of "Never Leave a Fallen Comrade Behind", the all volunteer and veteran leadership team is determined to do just that. In the fight to end veteran homelessness, the veteran leaders of the Seattle Stand Down are determined to "give a hand up, not a hand out" and to bring every veteran in the Seattle area that is homeless or at-risk of homelessness safely "home".
