Stand Down is a way for our community to support the homeless and those at risk of homelessness

To provide those without homes the resources they need to address their problems and rebuild their lives.

We have a very long "wish list" of items we would like to provide our attendees.

The items listed below are considered our high-demand items:


>   back packs

​>   sleeping bags

​>   blankets

​>   boots

​>   tents


>   dental health screenings

​>   physical health screening

​>   mental health screening​

This is volunteer­-driven. We depend on the donation of time, money and resources.
