Stand Down offers information, resources, free services to veterans and their families
Veterans and their families are invited to two Veterans Stand Down each year in the fall and spring, which typically take place at the Sheridan Park Community Center, 680 Lebo Ave, Bremerton. The next Stand Down is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, September 24, 2022.
Complimentary services for veterans and their families will be available including dental screenings, haircuts and assistance with housing, employment, education, counseling and more. Qualifying veterans and family members may also receive free clothing, sleeping bags, groceries, and personal hygiene items. View printable the flyer here for details.
Agencies providing services at the Stand Down include the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Washington State Department of Veterans Affairs, the Department of Social and Health Service, Red Cross, Olympic College, Kitsap Legal Services, Abraham's House, Asset Building Coalition, Housing Solutions Center, WorkSource, Kitsap Community Resources, Kitsap Transit and other Veteran assistance programs.
This event is open to Kitsap County veterans and their families only. Please provide a DD214 form, military retiree ID card, or VA card. Unaccompanied family members must bring a DD214 and proof of relationship. Those who are active duty transitioning out of the military or retiring by the end of the year are encouraged to attend to gather information and resources to assist in their transition to civilian life and make it as seamless as possible.
