To date, the Seattle Stand Down has assisted nearly 3,000 Veterans who are experiencing or at-risk of homelessness in the Seattle/King County area. We could not do this without the support of our general community! Thank you!

 

Through peer to peer social support and mentoring, a veteran finds the same camaraderie once thought lost. Veterans were not alone in their time of service and should not have to be alone now.



The Seattle Stand Down is committed to assisting military veterans and their families in every aspect of their transition from military to civilian life; whether they just became a veteran or have been one for a long time.



The Seattle Stand Down provides a place where veterans can have "one stop" access to various community and Veterans Affairs (federal, state and county) social services, focusing primarily on those veterans and families that are either homeless or at-risk of becoming homeless.



Keeping with the spirit of "Never Leave a Fallen Comrade Behind", the all volunteer leadership team is determined to do just that. In the fight to end veteran homelessness, the leaders of the Seattle Stand Down are determined to "give a hand up, not a hand out" and to bring every veteran in the Seattle area that is homeless or at-risk of homelessness safely "home.

Seattle/King County Clinic brings together healthcare organizations, civic agencies, non-profits, private businesses and volunteers from across the State of Washington to produce a giant free health clinic in KeyArena at Seattle Center.  The four-day volunteer-driven clinic provides a full range of free dental, vision and medical care to underserved and vulnerable populations in the region. Consider a donation of a day of your time to serve those in our community without access to care and receive free CE credits as a bonus.

 

As many of you know, with the Seattle Center Arena under construction, the Clinic has been moved to February 13 – 16, 2020 into 5 facilities at Seattle Center.
