Veterans Day Stand DownStartsH1

The American GI Forum National Veterans Outreach Program, Inc. is the recognized community leader that serves the needs of the homeless veterans living in the streets of San Antonio, Texas. In addition to the daily service that the organization provides through its Veterans Service Center and the American GI Forum Residential Center for Veterans, the organization also takes the lead in organizing an annual “stand-down” in the days preceding the many Veterans Day celebrations. It is our way of reminding the community that homeless veterans also need to be remembered on this special national holiday.

The Stand-Down is a one day event especially for homeless veterans and provides access to the services of more than 50 community agencies that provide medical and dental services, hot food, clothing, medical exams, flu shots, haircuts, and a variety of supplies and information. The Stand Down also provides day-long entertainment, including music, games, karaoke, and other social activities that help homeless veterans relax and enjoy the atmosphere of camaraderie and fun for the day. We serve hundreds of veterans and their families at this annual event and help them to engage in programs and services that will lead them back to self-sufficiency.

The 2019 Stand Down will take place on Friday, November 8, 2019 from 10:00AM - 2:00PM at 611 N. Flores. For more information, please contact Serg Dickerson at (210) 223-4088.
