Stand Down -The goal of Ventura County Stand Down is to assist veterans who are homeless become productive citizens of the community.  Some of the many services include medical, dental, prescription lenses, legal counseling, new clothing, showers, and hot meals.  On Friday afternoon, a superior court is held where veterans are given an opportunity to adjudicate their pending legal cases where, in lieu of fines or jail time, are given hours of community service at the Stand Down site. This effort is successful only with the support of the many volunteers and social organizations.
