When veterans return from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan some face tremendous challenges, which can lead to run-ins with the law.
The recently formed Justice Outreach Courts in Michigan and more than 50 others cities, specializes in working with troubled veterans to get them counseling, link them to government benefits, help them regain the sense of discipline and camaraderie they had in uniform, and steer them onto a more positive course in life.
The Court is definitely a cost-saver to taxpayers. The Court strives to keep defendants out of jail and only use such a sanction as a last resort. Most of the treatment is paid for by the various Veterans benefits organizations. The program recruits and trains veteran mentors who are an integral part of the program. They stand side by side with the defendant through their program and help them through it.
Anyone interested in becoming a Veteran Mentor, contact the person listed below in your area.
