Ventura County Stand Down is a yearly event designed to assist homeless veterans regardless of where they live.

During the two-night, three day event, Ventura County Stand Down offers a myriad of services to veterans who are homeless. This event takes place annually at the end of July. Veterans may bring their immediate family members (wife, husband, children, or significant other) to the Stand Down event.

For those veterans who are not homeless or for active duty military, Ventura County Stand Down welcomes them to attend on Friday and/or Saturday to access the many services available.

2017 Stand Down – Daily Schedule

“We can’t equate spending on veterans with spending on defense. Our strength is not just in the size of our defense budget, but in the size of our hearts, in the size of our gratitude for their sacrifice. And that’s not just measured in words or gestures.”
