An incredible organization made up primarily of veterans who work daily to improve the lives of homeless and at risk veterans in and around Nashville, Tennessee. If you know of a veteran in need, do not hesitate to refer him/her to Operation Stand Down Nashville, Inc.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

veteran services, including housing, employment, clothing, food and referrals.

More feedback...

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

outstanding, compassionate, professional and courteous.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Provide every veteran in Tennessee with outstanding services and companionship.

I have been involved with Operation Stand Down Nashville for three years. I have worked both at the annual event and volunteered for the daily office support. I can think of no better organization to identify as a leader in nonprofit service providers. They consistently lead in service percentages based on donations. The diversity of services that they provide to the veterans in almost unbelievable. The number of sucesses exceeds all superlatives I know. They do not give up on people but continue to encourage, support and welcome individuals to make the changes necessary to achieve selfsustainabilty.

I have been involved in the annual Operation Stand Down for Homeless Veterans since the time. The VA Dental Clinic does oral cancer screenings and dental health education. We tried to steer the vets who were most likely not eligible for VA Dental Care to private sources who might could help them with their needs.

StandDown, Nashville began when several caring individuals gathered at the Maxwell House Hotel on 8th Ave N, to hear a presentation about other like type organizations in the US, especially in CA. It has grown from that meeting and its first 3 day event, which by the way, cost less than $5000 in donated money to the outstanding organization it is today. Its strength has always been the Nashville VA Hospital, Tennessee Department of Veterans Affairs, State Employment Security, Metro Nashville Govt Agencies and employees, the various Veterans Organizations, Bell South Volunteers, Tennessee National Guard, (Army and Air) and all of the volunteers who have come out each year. It is wonderful to see the mission of Stand Down grow and assist in many ways never envisioned. I am very proud to have been a part of this truly outstanding accomplishment. Ron Moore, COL (R), US Army

Operation Stand Down is a non profit that truly has the Veterans on their minds at all times. They are expertly run, and the operation is efficient and safe. They do an excellent job of including all Veterans and their staff is friendly and helpful. I am proud to have donated time and funds to their cause, and I only wish more non profits ran as well as Operation Stand Down Nashville. I highly recommend them!

I had the privilege and the honor to sing for the weekend Retreat for Operation Standdown for our soldiers. The soldiers were counseled, clothed, fed and given hope. They shared their stories with me and led me to tears. I sang my songs to them and led them to tears as well. I could not have found a more worthy organization to support and look forward to working with them again very soon!

The Great!

I believe the only thing they can use is more volunteers and funding to help them help the soldiers help themselves.
