Volunteers at the VFW in Sioux Falls are looking to give veterans who are struggling a chance to get back on their feet.
The stand down for homeless veterans does more than just help those looking for a place to live, the stand down, just like a military stand down, looks to give veterans a break. Over 300 vets had the opportunity to get legal advice, or get help finding a home.
Veterans from a number of different organizations met at the Sioux Falls VFW building Friday. Organizers of the one-day event say the veteran’s stand down will be even more important in the future.
The stand down also gives struggling vets the chance to see what programs they could apply for to receive assistance. Many of the volunteers that helped were veterans themselves.
