The 2014 Maricopa County StandDown, which was held at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum February 14-16, 2014, is the largest, singular outreach event for homeless veterans in the country. The newly formed Arizona Veterans's StandDown Alliance, which supports all eight annual StandDown's throughout the state under the 501c3 of the Arizona Coalition to End Homelessness, relies heavily on contributions from the public to support over 2,500 veterans annually. This year’s event served 1,759 veterans, which was an increase of 17% from the previous year. While the primary goal is to help homeless veterans access resources, including housing, its secondary goal is to bring community and service providers together in a collaborative format to build relationships throughout the year to benefit homeless and at risk veterans. The 2015 Maricopa CountyStandDown will take place February 12-14, 2015.
The Arizona Veterans StandDown Alliance is a community collaboration and DBA of
