Harbor Homes/Welcoming Light

The transition from a soldier in combat to a civilian in an American city is often a difficult one. That is why on Thursday, September 28th, Harbor Homes will sponsor a Stand Down for homeless veterans at 45 High Street in Nashua.

The Stand Down will provide a wide variety of social services to homeless Veterans such as food, shelter, clothing, health screenings, VA and Social Security benefits counseling, and referrals to necessary services such as housing, employment, and substance use disorder treatment.

During the day, Harbor Homes, the Department of Veterans Affairs, and numerous other caring individuals, organizations, and agencies will strive to:

* Provide veterans with relief from the dangers, trauma and isolation of homelessness
* Supply them with basic necessities
* Bring together service providers, volunteers and professionals to create short-term and long-term solutions, to poverty, homelessness and unemployment
* Raise community awareness about homelessness (especially amongst veterans) through publicity, organizations and word-of-mouth.

A successful Stand Down requires months of preparation, hundreds of donations and the generosity of the entire community. Individuals become involved by volunteering to help with the event or organizing goods the Monday prior to the event, or donating boots, gloves, clothes, blankets, hygiene products, non-perishable food, backpacks, gas cards or used cars to help Veterans get to work. Professional community members offer on-site volunteer services such as legal services, haircuts, dental care, or information about obtaining apprenticeships. Large and small employers talk about work opportunities or training programs. In addition, attendees can enjoy a hot meal, music and the camaraderie of fellow Veterans.
