Cleveland Public Auditorium
A one-day event providing essential goods and services to those experiencing homelessness in our community.
Stand Down is a military term for a secure base camp where battle-weary soldiers were provided with beds, showers, clean clothes, warm meals, medical care, and letters from home.
Today, the Homeless Stand Down provides people experiencing homelessness, many of whom are veterans, with necessary resources, respite from the elements, and reconnection to the community.
BVU is honored to oversee the event as of 2020.
Join us in supporting our neighbors in need.
