Tallahassee Veterans Outreach

On May 17-18, 2019 at the North Florida Fairgrounds, the most recent North Florida Stand Down 2019 was held and served three hundred sixty (360) homeless and at-risk veterans; the majority were at-risk veterans. The event was successful due to the collaborative efforts of all parties involved. There were more than sixty (60) agencies/service providers and more than three hundred persons who volunteered and participated/assisted in this venture. The monetary donations totaled $33,610.00 and the in-kind donations including pro bono legal services exceeded $80,000. We are appreciative of all those sponsors, organizations and volunteers that generously gave to help defray the cost of hosting Stand Down for our Veterans. Overall, we were able to provide many needed services to our honored Veterans and heighten the awareness of the challenges that many Veterans continually encounter.
