Since 2004, the Maricopa County StandDown, coordinated by the Arizona Housing Coalition's Arizona Veterans StandDown Alliance, has served military veterans and their families experiencing or at risk of homelessness in our state’s capital. Growing to one of the largest events of its kind in the country, over 2,100 veterans were served at the 2017 event held in February, connecting them to critical supportive services to help them gain and maintain housing stability. Now we are ready for another year!
