StandDown

Once a case file has been opened, income verified and eligibility determined, payments are made directly to the service provider (i.e. utility company, landlord, mortgage company) on the client’s behalf. Generally, emergency assistance is provided on behalf of clients on a one-time basis in which the payment is considered to resolve the current crisis. All services are confidential, and release of information for any purpose requires formal written consent by the client.

MACV hosts a number of StandDown events throughout the state during the year. The Metro StandDown is a two day event, the other MACV StandDowns that are held throughout the year are one day events. These events offer the same one-stop services – this ability to gather so much information and receive assistance from multiple agencies at one time is what makes each MACV StandDown such a huge success.

For more information regarding StandDown, watch the “60 Minutes” video of the San Diego Event. MACV StandDowns, like all StandDowns helping veterans across the nation, are based off the services depicted here.
