Cleveland Public Auditorium
A one-day event providing essential goods and services to those experiencing homelessness in our community.
JOIN US IN PROVIDING
respite from the elements,
and reconnection to community
TO OUR NEIGHBORS IN NEED
Stand Down is a military term for a secure base camp where battle-weary soldiers were provided with beds, showers, clean clothes, warm meals, medical care, and letters from home.
Today, the Homeless Stand Down provides people experiencing homelessness, many of whom are veterans, with the same type of resources, respite, and reconnection.
Volunteer Opportunities Coming Soon!
There are many ways to volunteer and support the Homeless Stand Down. Volunteer opportunities include sorting and prep days in the weeks leading up to April’s event, as well as a variety of event day roles. Event day roles include guest registration, personal shoppers, Veteran support, distribution support, resource fair support, meal support, event setup and tear down and more!
BVU is honored to oversee the Homeless Stand Down as of 2020.
We hope to use our role in the community to connect businesses, nonprofits, and the community around the common goal of helping our fellow community members.
Our work is only possible because of you; the businesses, agencies, organizations, congregations, civic groups, individuals and families that come together to serve the Northeast Ohio community.
BVU is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit. All donations are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law. BVU’s tax identification number is 34-1724581.
