Veterans Court of Southern Indiana Mentor Veterans

Veterans Treatment Courts are successful in part because they link troubled veterans with volunteer veteran mentors. Mentor veterans will also be present at each court proceeding. Mentors are here to ensure that you receive the support and assistance to achieve success in Veterans Court and in your life.

Volunteer Veteran Mentors may assist veterans with the following:

  • Skills testing and an education assessment
  • Job training and job-readiness training
  • School or other educational services
  • Job placement services
  • Family counseling
  • Life skills classes
  • Public Assistance/Medicaid
  • Recreational activities

One third of America’s homeless are veterans; on any given night 67,000 veterans are on the streets. The majority suffer from substance abuse, mental illness, or co-occurring disorders.
