A community is often judged by how well it takes care of its own. Serving those who have served our Nation is the primary goal of the East Bay Stand Down.

The East Bay Stand Down is a consortium of community organizations coming together to provide a four-day event every other year that bring together the nine-county homeless and at-risk military Veterans living in the Bay Area of California, connecting them with services ranging from:

VA HealthCare, Dental, Mental Health Services, Clothing, Meals, Emergency Shelter, Transitional and Permanent Housing, ID/Drivers License's, Court Services and Legal Aide, Showers and Haircuts and myriad other services and resources. The East Bay Stand Down is currently held at Alameda County Fairground in Pleasanton, California, serving no more than 500 Veterans. MORE...
