On Friday, October 4th, Ohio Valley Goodwill’s Veterans Services team joined with the Disabled American Veterans and the Cincinnati VA Medical Center for the 2019 Fall Stand Down. The event took place at the DAV headquarters on their Northern Kentucky campus. A “Stand Down” is a day set aside to provide needed services for military veterans and their families. More than 5o vendors and community partners gathered to provide assistance with everything from employment to housing to health care, clothing, flu shots, hair cuts and other essential supports for veterans who are challenged with homelessness. For more than 25 years, Ohio Valley Goodwill has worked in partnership with a host of  partners to provide a comprehensive array of needed services to help veterans to become fully reintegrated into the larger Greater Cincinnati community.

“Goodwill is proud to have the opportunity to offer these vital programs and services for our military heroes,” said Nikki Holloday, HVRP Case Manager. Goodwill has long been recognized by the Veterans Administration and other local agencies for their commitment to serve local veterans.
