What is a Stand Down?
In times of war exhausted combat units requiring time to rest and recover were removed from the battlefields to a place of relative safety and security. Other rested units assumed the watch. Today, Stand Down refers to a time when our homeless veterans can remove themselves from the combat of the streets and allow VVSD and the community of San Diego to stand the watch so they can receive needed services and rest.
Stand Down’s Philosophy:
A hand up, not a hand out. Stand Down is more than a place to get … it is a place to belong, once again, to a community.
Stand Down is a place of miracles. Lives are changes and lives are saved. For perhaps the first time in many days, maybe months or years our veterans have a safe haven to put down their burdens and lift themselves up to the possibilities of change.
