BELLEVUE, KY (FOX19) -

Disabled American Veterans partnered with a number of local support groups Friday to serve homeless veterans in the Tri-State.

Homeless Veterans Stand Down was held at the Bellevue Veterans Club on Fairfield Avenue.  Several services were offered to veterans in need, including medical, dental and eye care, social services, employment counseling and legal aid.

The opening ceremony began at 8:30 a.m. followed by lunch.

"Many of America's veterans have transitional issues after leaving the service for a variety of reasons," said National Headquarters Executive Director Barry Jesinoski. "This can lead to some hard times for veterans and their families. This stand down is designed to help relieve some of that stress and provide a good starting point for veterans to take back their lives with respect and dignity."

These services, like all services offered by DAV, were free to veterans and their families.
