Event to Help Local Veterans in Need

Across the country, more than 39,000 veterans are homeless on any given night. In Wake County, the South Wilmington Street Center's shelter for men served more than 220 homeless veterans in fiscal year 2015.

On Oct. 28, Wake County and its partners will hold the 10th annual Capital Area Veterans Stand Down to help those who have served our country and are in need. The event will offer a wide range of services to help veterans find employment, obtain housing and work toward achieving stability in their lives.

A full breakfast and lunch will be served, and shower and laundry facilities will be available. Veterans will also have the opportunity to meet with various service organizations, including Veterans Affairs and Veterans Services officers.

More than 200 veterans are expected to attend the event, which will be held at the South Wilmington Street Center, located at 1420 South Wilmington St. in Raleigh from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The Capital Area Vets Stand Down is sponsored by Wake County Human Services, Wake Community Services, N.C. Department of Commerce Division of Workforce Solutions, Raleigh Vet Center, Durham VA Medical Center, CASA and Passage Home.
