Operation Stand Down Midsouth, Inc. is a 501 c (3) nonprofit veterans organization. Our mission is to help homeless veterans through transitional programs and services to become self-sufficient and economically viable members of the community.

"Giving Our Veterans a hand up not a hand out"

What is a Stand Down?

 A stand down is a military term where war- ridden soldiers go to a place of security to receive such items as: personal hygiene, clean uniforms and medical care. OSDM applied the same concept to return the continuum of care to displaced veterans today. 

Stand Downs are typically one to three day events providing services to Veterans such as food, shelter, clothing, health screenings, VA and Social Security benefits counseling, and referrals to a variety of other necessary services, such as housing, employment and substance abuse treatment. Stand Downs are collaborative events, coordinated between Operation Stand Down Midsouth, local VAs, other government agencies, and community agencies who serve the homeless.

We're dedicated to the growth and enhancement of men and women who have served our country. To repay our debt of gratitude, we provide eligible veterans with helpful resources.
