The event will focus on helping homeless veterans in the Linn and Benton County area connect with necessary services that are available here. Health screenings, Social Security benefits counseling, and dental services will be provided. Veterans can also receive referrals to health care providers, health insurance, housing solutions, employment, substance abuse treatment and mental health counseling.
Transportation details are being worked out and will be announced soon.
Stand downs are collaborative events that provide basic necessities and services to veterans. Stand downs are coordinated among local veteran support organizations, other government agencies and community-based homeless service providers, including our local community action agency, Community Services Consortium.
