Arizona Housing Coalition Collaborates

Lasting change is created when we work together

Arizona Veterans StandDown Alliance

We are all in this work together — collaboration is one of the main pillars of our work. Through the Arizona Veterans StandDown Alliance (AVSA), the Arizona Housing Coalition provides assistance to local communities and agencies that are responding to homelessness among our military veterans by offering technical assistance as well as access to a wide variety resources,  information, and connections. AVSA is proud to support StandDown events happening in 13 of Arizona's 15 counties, including the country’s largest, the Maricopa County StandDown.

Maricopa County StandDown
Held January 25th thru 27th, 2018

Veterans Memorial Coliseum
Phoenix, AZ | More info

This two-day event and resource fair, open to all military veterans in the Phoenix metro area experiencing homelessness or in need of assistance and resource connection, assisted 1,658 veterans, and their families, at the January 2018 event. The largest of it's kind in the nation, the Maricopa County StandDown is coordinated by AVSA, in partnership with the Arizona Department of Veterans' Services; and thanks to our volunteer coordination partner, Valley of the Sun United Way; our first-ever full-service dental provider, Central Arizona Dental Society's Mission of Mercy; and many other government agencies and community organizations with a vested interest in helping us serve those who have served.

Partnership for Healthy Communities

We are also proud to be a founding member of the Arizona Partnership for Healthy Communities, a statewide collaboration of more than 30 nonprofits, foundations, businesses and government agencies working to ensure all communities in Arizona are healthy places to live. To aid in this mission, we proudly partnered with the Arizona Partnership for Healthy Communities to execute the Annual Arizona Healthy Communities Conference. This year, for the first time ever, we look forward to bringing this annual conference to you as its own independent track of our Annual Statewide Conference.
