"Vets helping Vets"

Veteran's Court Needs Volunteers!!

The Veterans Treatment Court NEEDS volunteer veteran mentors to assist our veteran brothers that are involved with complication in the Vanderburgh County Court system.

 

Mission:  

To successfully rehabilitate veterans in the court system using evidence based 

treatment to positively change behavior to lead productive, law abiding civilian lives.

 

Veteran mentors provide a support relationship with Court selected veterans in order to provide  a trusted friend who has “been there”.  The mentors are an adjunct to the support system provided by Court Case managers, the VA Mental Health Department and other agencies.


Mentors are assigned to maintain contact weekly to help his/her assigned veteran mentee through the sometime difficult pressures of their rehabilitation.  Mentors are not expected to be a counselor, financial supporter, or chauffeur of mentees.  Mentors are expected to be available to mentees as a friend.

 

If you are interested in helping you brother veterans on the path too a better life, or simply wish more information
please contact:

 

Barry Duncan, Court Veteran Mentor Coordinator
Cell:  270-339-6656
Email: barrywduncan@att.net


 

 Please know that a request for more information is not a  commitment to serve.
