SEMINOLE – The Bay Pines VA Healthcare System will host a Stand Down for Homeless Veterans event on Saturday, April 5, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The event is scheduled to take place in the courtyard located near Building 37 at the medical center campus located in Bay Pines.

The event will be held rain or shine and feature a wide range of services available for homeless veterans and those at risk of becoming homeless. Services will include access to medical care; free meals, toiletries, hot showers and clothing items; VA health care, benefits and housing information; employment assistance and more.

Veterans interested in attending the event should bring a copy of their DD214 “Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty,” birth certificate, social security card and two documents that can verify their mailing address. Veterans who currently reside in a shelter also are encouraged to furnish a copy of their shelter statement.

“The brave men and women who served our country with honor and distinction should never be without a place to call home, living without care,” said Kris Brown, associate director, Bay Pines VAHCS.

“Through events like homeless stand downs and other outreach programs, we are able to partner with community agencies to provide valuable resources to homeless Veterans or those who are at risk. Our aim is to get them back on their feet and to provide them with the care they earned through their military service,” she added.

Over the years, the Bay Pines VAHCS has participated in, and hosted, numerous stand down events across the 10-county area the system serves, said Jennifer Sprague, homeless veterans coordinator, Bay Pines VAHCS.

“Stand down events have streamlined Veterans’ access to homeless programs and resources, and reduced barriers to important VA and community resources. Services include mental health, substance abuse treatment, employment, housing, medical and dental, legal, and simple needs such as food, clothing and supplies,” she said.
