Many veterans, who served America with honor and distinction during times of war and peace, now find themselves homeless. Helping these servicemen and women get off the street is not giving them a handout, it is merely providing a down payment on a debt that can never adequately be repaid.
The mission of the Veterans Transition Center is to provide services for Monterey County's homeless veterans and their families. By providing veterans with traditional housing, emergency services and case management programs, veterans will once again become employable, productive members of the community. VTC does not simply offer short term solutions to homelessness, it strives to better the lives of homeless veterans and aims to give them the tools they need to help themselves.
2014 Monterey County Homeless Veterans Stand Down
Stand Down 2014, to be held August 1-3 on the former Fort Ord in Seaside, California, is a bi-annual event led by the VTC and supported by the United Veterans Council. This vitally important program provides food, clothing, shelter, and a wide variety of services - including medical, dental, legal, and veterinary - to homeless Veterans, their families, and their cherished pets. Staffed by more than 400 volunteers, your generous financial support provides food, clothing, supplies and utilities for the event, and secures the equipment and facilitates required to deliver safe and supportive services to these honored Veterans.
