Cleveland was the first city in the United States to do a joint Homeless Stand Down serving veterans and non-veteran homeless individuals. Stand Down is a military term for a rest period after a battle, and the Stand Downs starting in San Diego were traditionally reserved for veterans. We did the first Stand Down for any homeless person 25 years ago. This does not mean that we do not have a section reserved for vets every year at the Stand Down.
We have updated our webpage to reflect the 25th anniversary of the Stand Down with a flyer for distribution on our webpage. Here is the flyer. If you are interested in volunteering for the Stand Down contact HandsOn NEO at 216-432-9390. If you can help with transporting homeless people to the Stand Down in January contact Ken at NEOCH. We want this Stand Down to be the best yet.
