All three sites have extensive listings of Stand Down event dates for 2015. The information found in these listings includes the date, city and state of the event and the point of contact information for people wishing to either volunteer or participate in these events. At each website, the lists of event dates are updated frequently for inclusion of any new events.

The National Coalition for Homeless Veterans also has a classification key for these events that consists of the letters A through F. The letters represent the type of event, such as a Stand Down A event is a three- or four-day event with shelter for homeless veterans. The letter D stands for a homeless veterans health fair that is a one-day event.

Stand Down events, which can take place from one to four days, provide different types of services for homeless veterans. At these events, veterans can find resources to help them get access to shelter, employment, food and health care, as noted by MilitaryConnection.com.
