Watch our 2018 interview with Community Hotline discussing the Portland Veteran Stand Down!


The Portland Veterans Stand Down – Oregon’s largest – honors and supports Veterans, who are often either experiencing or at-risk of homelessness. Women and men who have served in the military access essential supportive resources and services, employment and connections to local, state and federal support. This community-led partnership combines local nonprofits, government officials, corporations and businesses to welcome more than 400 veterans annually.
