Los Angeles
Veteran & Families Stand Down

December 19-21, 2015

Los Angeles Convention Center

A 3-day event in downtown Los Angeles that brings together dozens of service providers from the public and private sectors to help vets with everything from housing and employment assistance to a variety of VA services to dental and other medical and wellness services.


The Los Angeles Stand Down is the largest event of its kind in the country. This year the event is expected to serve over 2,500 vets from the greater Los Angeles area.


Why Los Angeles?

Los Angeles has the largest population of homeless military veterans in the nation. Roughly 20% of the 4,360 homeless vets in the U.S. living on the streets and in shelters of Los Angeles on any given night.

What Is The Goal?

President Obama and the Department of Veteran Affairs set a national goal of ending veteran homelessness by 2015. As the second largest U.S. city, Los Angeles is a leader in solving community issues and with L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti’s backing, the Stand Down will be an invaluable tool in reaching this important goal.
