Spokane homeless veterans to have access to services at Saturday event
SPOKANE, Wash. – Spokane veterans experiencing homelessness will have access to a variety of services at Saturday’s “Veteran Stand Down” event.
The event coincides with the city of Spokane’s Point-in-Time Count, which provides a snapshot of those experiencing homelessness, but also seeks to understand why and what challenges people are facing to get out of homelessness.
The Veteran Stand Down helps provide an understanding of how many veterans make up Spokane’s homeless population.
Those who attend the Saturday event will be able to learn more about housing services, VA benefits, employment readiness, health care services, legal services, education, energy assistance and suicide prevention.
The event runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the West Central Community Center at 1603 N. Belt. Lunch will be provided between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m.
