28th Annual Denver Homeless Veteran Stand Down

Te volunteers represented homeless veterans with outstanding warrants for violations of Denver’s City Ordinance as they appeared before Judge Beth Faragher in Denver County Court. Most of the veterans who appear at these events with outstanding warrants receive community service in lieu of a fine.

These events provide veterans who are experiencing homelessness with supplies, services, and referrals, including food, shelter, clothing, health screenings, benefits counseling, housing solutions, employment assistance, substance abuse treatment, and mental health counseling.
