Central Valley Homeless Veterans Assistance Program

Hosted by the Yuba Sutter Veterans Stand Down Committee and dozens of local volunteers, this annual three day event, open to all veterans, in 2022 will move indoors to the Yuba-Sutter Fairgrounds in Yuba City, CA

The term 'stand down" comes from the Vietnam war where soldiers were given the opportunity to stand down from their stressful wartime duties in the field to get some hot food and a shower, maybe take care of some personal business or get medical treatment or other services that they couldn't get in the field.

The Yuba-Sutter Stand Down event offers the same opportunity to local veterans who may be experiencing difficult lifestyles and need a break or services normally not available to them. Free services available at the stand down for all veterans include:
