Stand Downs - A military heritage offers a contemporary approach to serving homeless or at-risk veterans.

"Stand Downs provide the opportunity to engage with our neediest veterans," said J. Michael Armstrong, Chief Executive Officer of Community Hope. The agency will provide housing and services to more than 1,000 homeless veterans and at-risk veteran families in the next year. "We have the programs in place to help homeless veterans and the Stand Down allows us to reach those that need the most help, try to engage with them and earn their trust so that they are willing to accept the basic essentials they need and the services we provide."
