It includes a secure environment, respect and understanding, food clothing, shelter plus legal, dental, optical, and other services including references to long term treatment options at Veterans Village of San Diego. It has been described as Maslow's hierarchy of needs in a Woodstock type environment due to the extensive music venue and convivial spirit.
