The Homeless Stand Down (HSD) is a one-day event providing access to resources for individuals and families facing poverty and homelessness. The Homeless Stand Down provides homeless individuals, families, and veterans a day of respite from the elements, renewal of the human spirit, and reconnection to needed services that assist in the totality of human wellness and sustainability.  

An estimated 1,500 guests enjoy access to social service providers, haircuts, medical screenings, live entertainment, professional portraits, breakfast and lunch, and free winter clothing, personal care kits, bus passes and much more.

The next Homeless Stand Down is Saturday, January 12, 2019; start donating now!


The Homeless Stand Down is only possible because of YOU, the congregations, organizations, agencies, corporations and civic groups that come together to serve the greater Cleveland community. From preparing bagged lunches, and hosting winter glove and hat drives, to fundraising, sorting donations, and serving meals there are endless ways to be involved with the Homeless Stand Down.
