Web Site Update and Newsletter Changes 


https://www.pointmanofnewburgh.com 

Our website has been updated to show how your computer or cell phone should look as you log into Zoom! We can't meet in person right now, but we can meet online. The process is easy. You will receive a meeting invitation (link) on December 5th for our December 7th meeting when we will meet online for an informal gathering at 5:30 PM and then our membership meeting at 6:30 PM.

The website now includes step-by-step views of a typical Zoom meeting login. Go to our Home page and select Upcoming Events under the Events dropdown menu. The information for our December 7th online meeting begins there. Click on Event Details to see the Zoom meeting detail.

Please email us at pointmanofnewburgh@gmail.com with “Zoom Meeting” as the subject if you have questions.


Newsletter Changes:

Okay, I'm new to the group and I'm already bored by my newsletter updates. The COVID-19 pandemic has most of us reducing our activities and Point Man of Newburgh has been forced to cancel many in-person meetings. There is a lot going on, but there really isn't a lot of "news" to report each week. If I send you a newsletter each week that has no news, you will stop reading it. Our numbers show that only 20 to 25% of those receiving the newsletter are opening it. We want his to be a news-filled communication that our members look forward to receiving.

Until conditions improve and we begin to have more news-worthy activities we are going to send the Newsletter out once per month rather than once per week. If we have a special note or information between newsletters, we'll use email to notify you..

"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.
