About the Veterans Village of San Diego
Veterans Village of San Diego believes intensive treatment leads to self-sustaining independence, the maximizing of human potential and a meaningful, fulfilling life. Our veterans are worthy of nothing less. Founded in 1981, and dedicated to the promise to “Leave No One Behind,” VVSD is a nationally-recognized nonprofit and non-government leader in providing a comprehensive continuum of care to veterans in need and their families. Stand Down was started by VVSD in 1988. There are now over 200 Stand Downs held each year throughout the U.S. With five locations throughout San Diego County, VVSD serves more than 2,000 veterans each year, offering housing, food, clothing, substance abuse recovery, mental health counseling, job training, job search assistance and legal services to the men and women who’ve served and sacrificed for our country.
