The organizers of Los Angeles Veteran & Families Stand Down have asked Emperor’s College to organize and provide treatments to veterans and their families at this year’s Stand Down event on December 20-21.

Stand Downs are events held in cities across the country to provide food, clothing, services and referrals to homeless veterans and veterans at-risk of becoming homeless. Stand Downs are sponsored by U.S.VETS, the nation’s largest nonprofit provider of comprehensive services to homeless and at-risk veterans. This year’s event will be held in the LA Convention Center and is expected to draw upwards of 2,500 in-need participants.
