Our Vision

Since 1993, empowering Veterans to achieve their American Dream.

Our Mission

Operation Stand Down Tennessee assists Veterans and their families so they can be self-sustaining  and better connected to the community.

Our Goals

    •  We operate a Service Center providing and/or coordinating  a variety of services to all Veterans and their families with special emphasis on those who are homeless.
    •  We provide Employment training and counseling, technical assistance, job training, placement assistance, computer training and job retention to Veterans with the focus of helping Veterans find good jobs.
    •  We operate a Transitional Housing Program for Veterans providing the necessary social and support services to ensure a successful return to responsible living.
    •  We coordinate Stand Downs with Middle Tennessee agencies to inform and provide social and support services for Veterans.
    • We operate a  Thrift Store that provides a job-training program for veterans, provides clothes to Veterans and their families  (at no cost to them!) and generates revenue to support programs in our Veteran Service Center.
