Our Story

About the NCVSD

North County Veterans Stand Down is an annual four-day event in Vista, California, that enables ALL veterans throughout San Diego County to receive much-needed services in a safe, friendly, drug-free, and secure environment.

We are a grassroots volunteer organization that serves ALL veterans in whatever state of life they are in, whether they are transitioning from the military, temporarily challenged by life, or otherwise on the road to success. Wherever you are in life, we strive to help you make it better.
We do what we do because we are veterans and family members of veterans who are grateful for those who have served our country and feel the need to help them succeed in life. If you feel the same way we do and want to do something about it, please contact us at 866-535-2038 or
