​Kitsap County Stand Down

Stand Down offers information, resources, free services to veterans and their families

Veterans and their families are invited to two Veterans Stand Down per year, which typically takes place at the Sheridan Park Community Center, 680 Lebo Ave,  in Bremerton, once in the spring and once in the fall. 

Complimentary services for women and men veterans and their families will be available including dental screening, Veterans Assistance, housing, employment, education, counseling and more. Qualifying veterans and family members may also receive free clothing, sleeping bags, groceries, and personal hygiene items.

Agencies providing services at the Stand Down include the Department of Veterans Affairs, Olympic College, Veteran Service Organizations, Kitsap Legal Services, Washington Department of Veterans Affairs, Abraham House, Asset Building Coalition, Housing Solutions Center, WorkSource, Department of Social and Health Service, Red Cross, Kitsap Community Resources and Kitsap Transit.

This event is open to Kitsap County veterans and their families only. Please provide DD214, military retiree ID card, or VA card.  Unaccompanied family members must bring a DD214 and proof of relationship.  Those who are active duty transitioning out of the military or retiring by the end of the year are encouraged to attend to gather information and resources to assist in their transition to civilian life and make it as seamless as possible.

The event is sponsored by the VFW 2669 Riders Group, Kitsap Sun, Kitsap Credit Union, Silverdale Chamber of Commerce, City of Bremerton, Grocery Outlet Bargain Market, AL-P-109, DAV Chapters 5 & 22 and Women's Auxiliary, Michael & Karen Johnson, Abraham House, Kitsap County Veterans Advisory Board and Kitsap Area Veterans Alliance.
