Due to the impact of Hurricane Harvey and the increased number of homeless veterans in the storm-ravaged area, the Department of Veterans Affairs annual homeless Veterans stand down took on new significance. 'Operation Stand Down Rebound,' sponsored by the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center and the City of Houstson, provides homeless Veterans and those at risk of becoming homeless, with the opportunity to access a broad range of services in one convenient location. The increased support will allow DeBakey and Houston to serve Veterans who are still in need of housing, extended basic needs such as: mattress, bedding, work attire and household items as a result of storm damage. For more information, read the VA VAntage Point Blog and visit the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center website.
