The North Idaho Veterans Stand Down will be held on Saturday, May 7th from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at North Idaho College, 1000 W. Garden Avenue, Coeur d’Alene. The annual event is a program created to assist veterans and their families in Eastern Washington and the five Northern Idaho counties.
In the military, Stand Down refers to a necessary mental and physical break from combat. Military personnel would spend time in a safe place to rest and recuperate before returning to the front lines. Today, Stand Down is an event that provides a safe place for veterans and their families to engage with veteran community resources. Veterans will have the opportunity to meet personally with VA healthcare and benefits representatives. Organizations that provide medical, dental, counseling, assistance with Wills, housing, clothing, food assistance, haircuts, and bike repair will also be available. Breakfast and lunch will be served to all attendees, volunteers, and service providers.
The Stand Down’s goal is to reach veterans who are homeless or at risk of being homeless as well as all veterans and their families. Through the work of volunteers and local organizations, this one-day event provides veterans and their families’ invaluable information and resources.

To volunteer, request more information, or for veterans’ assistance, please contact North Idaho Veterans Stand Down Inc, (208)964-2819 or email NorthIdahoVeteransStandDown@gmail.com.
