The Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center, in partnership with Palmetto Goodwill and Palmetto Warrior Connection, will hold its 18th Annual Stand Down Against Homelessness event on Friday, October 13th at the VA Community Resource and Referral Center in North Charleston from 8 am to 2 pm.
The event will offer medical screenings and assistance, clothing, food, haircuts, and legal counseling for hundreds of homeless Veterans in the greater Charleston area. Job assistance and opportunities to speak with local employers will be available for those seeking work.
The focus of the event is on Veterans who are living on the streets or close to it. The goal is to get Veterans the resources they need to get back on their feet and set the foundation for a successful future.
The Community Resource and Referral Center provides full wrap around services for homeless Veterans, including a walk-in clinic, eligibility and enrollment, short and long term case management, assessment for transitional and permanent housing, telehealth services to our VA outpatient clinics, and educational groups. VA staff work side by side with community partners to provide Veterans the support they need to find transitional and permanent housing.
The VA Community Resource and Referral Center is located at 2424 City Hall Lane in North Charleston.
