Our Goals

The stated goals of a Chicago Standdown are to:

  • Provide a respite from the rigors of life on the street;
  • Help veterans obtain housing and establish a source of income; and
  • Stabilize medical conditions.

However, just as important as these, is the opportunity to acknowledge the contribution veterans have made for all of us.
