About StandDown

The Arizona Veterans StandDown Alliance (AVSA), established in 2013, is a program of the Arizona Housing Coalition that holds annual events and resource fairs in 13 of Arizona’s 15 counties, including the nation’s largest event of its kind, the annual Maricopa County StandDown. These events allow veterans and their families who are experiencing housing instability and homelessness to get and stay connected to supportive services.

Registration/Data Entry:
Register veteran guests as they enter the event and enter data with speed and accuracy.

Volunteer Check-In/Support:
Ensure a smooth experience for your fellow volunteers. Assist with volunteer arrivals and check-in, including some light data entry and explanation of what to expect.
