RivCoDCSS and San Bernardino DCSS join efforts for veterans


Free meals, duffle bags, toiletries, medical and dental services brought in 299 military veterans to the March Air Force Reserve Base on Friday, Sept 27th, but for many, the bigger gift could come in the form of permanent and stable homes in the future.


The trove of goodies and services available at the mass Stand Down was welcome by former sailors, soldiers, and Marine veterans. What makes this event unique for our veterans; this was the first time Riverside County and San Bernardino partnered with one another to help the needs of our veterans. Though the event was held in Riverside County, San Bernardino County joined efforts to ensure all veterans who needed assistance with their child support case would be able to talk to either of the counties to ensure their needs are met. Collectively, over 40 military veterans received services from both Riverside and San Bernardino County.


Reaching New Heights Foundation (RNHF) organized the Stand Down 2019 event, which focused on bringing awareness of local, state, and federal services military veterans may be entitled to. The event provided resources to active and past military personnel. The goal was to increase awareness in the community resources in hopes of “Serving Those Who Served”. During the event, veterans had a “one-stop” resource center for all their needs. Not only were they provided with information on resources available to them, but they were able to get help on site. Medical and dental screenings were offered to those veterans that needed service, as well. In addition to those services, housing, counseling, and legal services, employment, educational, and credit counseling were offered. Among local resources in attendance were; Riverside County Child Support, San Bernardino County Child Support, Riverside University Health System, Department of Motor Vehicles, and Riverside County Department of Veterans’ Services, housing services, and many more local resources. This year’s RNHF served over 350 military veterans. It’s of 20-30% increase in attendance compared to 2018’s event. Our veterans are receiving the help they need and sharing information with other veterans.


Every veteran in attendance was entitled to all of the services mentioned, and they all received surplus clothes, equipment, supplies, and haircuts. This was one of the first partnerships between both Riverside and San Bernardino County to support our veterans, but it will not be the last.
