2017 Greater Boston Stand Down for Veterans


The New England Center and Home for Veterans (NECHV) will host the Greater Boston Stand Down, a one-day event that brings together service providers and local Veterans and enables Veterans to receive immediate comprehensive and coordinated services in one place.

This remarkable community event will comprise more than 80 federal, state, and local agencies and nonprofits to provide a day of all-inclusive, intensive support to Veterans in the Greater Boston area. The day will include job training and employment fair, medical and dental care and screening on site, housing assistance advocates, female Veteran services experts, health and wellness clinic, mental health and substance use disorder counseling services, clothing and personal hygiene product distribution, identification card/license support from the RMV Legal assistance, and free haircuts. 

Breakfast, lunch, and refreshments will be available to all attendees. Entertainment will be provided throughout the day. On-site child care will be offered to Veteran families who need to access the critical stabilization services available at Stand Down.
