St. Cloud Stand Down, Inc. is a non-profit organization created by veterans for veterans. For the past 21 years, we have been serving the vets of St. Cloud, MN, providing everything from housing assistance to employment opportunities. With the help of residents throughout the region donating and volunteering their time, we’ve been able to aid hundreds of veterans.
St. Cloud Stand Down is proud to be the second oldest Stand Down in the country and the largest in the state of Minnesota. The purpose of a Stand Down is to provide supplies and services to homeless veterans or vets in need, as well as to host events to help them get back on their feet. In the past two decades, we have hosted 38 consecutive Stand Down events. The next event is a job fair that will take place on October 18th, 2019, with over 50 organizations and businesses set to be involved.
No matter what it is you need, St. Cloud Stand Down will never turn our back on you. From basic necessities like food, shelter, and clothing to vital health screenings and VA social security benefits counseling, our veterans’ organization is here to help.
