VA-HUD VASH Homeless Stand Down in Reno


Homeless veterans in Reno received a helping hand up last month in the annual Reno Homeless Veterans Stand Down. It’s a one-stop shop approach to providing help, resources and services to veterans in need of assistance. They receive connections to  VA Health screenings, Social Security benefits counseling, VA benefits claims assistance, along with food, a free haircut and much more.

A group of Vietnam veterans organized the first Homeless Veterans Stand Down back in 1988. Since then, it has spread across the nation becoming an effective tool in reaching homeless veterans living on the streets and in need of assistance.

This year, one lucky veteran received the surprise of his life! It was a set of keys that will change his life.
