We meet the second Tuesday of the month 7pm at the Cherry Hill National Guard Armory, on Park Blvd, in Cherry Hill, NJ.
The South Jersey Stand Down has been held annually since September 1996. Originally a three-day event, the Stand Down was hosted at Fort Dix New Jersey. After a decision was made to hold a one-day event, it was relocated to the Army National Guard Armory in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. Primary support (provisions of the structure, grounds and utilities) is provided by the New Jersey Department of Military and Veterans Affairs.
The Cherry Hill Stand Down provides servives to homeless veterans along with shelter, meals, clothing, and medical attention. This anual event is an entirely volunteer effort, organized within Camden County and New Jersey communities, bringing service providers together such as the Disabled Veterans Outreach Program Specialists, Local Veterans Employment representitives, various veterans service organizations, military personnel, civic leaders, local grammer schools and a variety of other organizations. Since 1996 this event has served as a cataylist that enables homeless veterans to re-enter mainstream society.
