WELCOME TO CHARLES E. SWISHER VFW POST 1924
North County Veterans Stand Down is an annual four-day event in Vista, California, that enables homeless veterans from across San Diego County to receive much-needed services in a safe, friendly, drug-free and secure environment.
Wounded Warrior Homes, Inc., is a 501(c)3 non-profit whose mission is to provide transitional housing and re-integrative services to post 9/11 veterans with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and/or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Veterans Village of San Diego (VVSD) has served all veterans since 1981 and is dedicated to “Leave No One Behind.” VVSD is the only program of its kind in the United States and is nationally recognized as the leader in serving homeless military veterans. Each year VVSD provides services to more than 3,000 military veterans throughout San Diego County.
VA’s specialized programs for homeless Veterans serve hundreds of thousands of homeless and at-risk Veterans each year. Independently and in collaboration with federal and community partners, VA programs provide Veterans with housing solutions, employment opportunities, health care, justice- and reentry-related services and more. Learn more about these programs below and at VA’s Programs for At-Risk Veterans and Their Families page.
Homeless Veterans of San Diego exists to put an end to the epidemic of homelessness among our veterans. No veteran that has served our country should have to sleep next to a freeway, in downtown doorways, under bridges, in tents on busy city streets, or in brush in canyons and parks.
If so, you earned the right to join our ranks. If not you are eligible to join the American Legion that also meets at the Post.
