Welcome to the Arizona Veteran StandDown Alliance website

The Arizona Veteran StandDown Alliance is a DBA of the Arizona Housing Coalition (formerly AZCEH) and was formed not only to manage the Maricopa County StandDown but to assist in funding the StandDown events that occur throughout the state. A StandDown is community-based event where organizations come together to provide annual, one to three day events that bring together the State's homeless and at-risk military veterans, connecting them with services ranging from: VA HealthCare, Mental Health Services, Clothing, Meals, Emergency Shelter, Transitional and Permanent Housing, ID/ Drivers License's, Court Services and Legal Aide, Showers and Haircuts and myriad other services and resources. StandDowns are held in different counties throughout the State with the largest, serving 2,109 veterans, at the 2017 Maricopa County StandDown, held at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum at the Arizona State Fairgrounds in Maricopa County on February 9th & 10th, 2017.

While its primary goal is helping homeless veterans access the resources needed (including housing) to regain their highest level of independence; its secondary goal is to bring our community and service providers together in a collaborative format that can build relationships throughout the year that positively benefit homeless and at-risk veterans. Ultimately, it is our hope that the events will create the awareness, political/community will and consistent data necessary to acquire the on-going resources it will take to end veteran homelessness once and for all.

The Arizona Veterans StandDown Alliance (AVSA) is coordinated by the Arizona Housing Coalition (formerly AZCEH), with all donations being processed by the Coalition, which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, tax ID#86-0909029, and an Arizona Qualifying Charitable Organization.
