VENTURA COUNTY STAND DOWN
July 29, 2019 - July 31, 2019
An event every year that begins at 12:00am on day 29 of July, repeating indefinitely
In August 1992, some of Ventura County’s finest citizens and leaders gathered for a meeting at the Ventura County Veterans Service Office to discuss the feasibility of establishing a Stand Down in Ventura County. The results of the meeting were positive and the attendees concluded the logistical challenges posed by Ventura County Stand Down could be overcome with the cooperation and commitment of the people of Ventura County. In just one year, we turned an idea into a reality. Today, we continue to build into a vital relief-effort for homeless veterans. Veterans from the Counties of San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Ventura, and Los Angeles were invited to participate.
