Veterans Court Mentors Wanted

Post Date:10/11/2017 4:07 PM

If you have served in the U.S. Military and live in Carver County (or close to the county), you may be eligible to join the Carver County Veterans Court as a Volunteer Mentor. This is a rewarding opportunity to help a fellow veteran grow as he or she works toward graduating from this special program. Male and female mentors are needed. 

Carver County’s Veterans Court is a special, problem-solving court that helps U.S. Military Veterans charged with criminal offenses who need help overcoming problems with chemical dependency and mental health.  Carver County Veterans Court has been in existence since 2014 and provides a high level of intensive supervision and treatment to its participants with the goal of stabilizing them and returning them to the high level of personal dignity that they once knew when they were soldiers.  Defendants who enter the program are current or former military members who are struggling and need supporters.  Each is motivated to change and grow. 

If you are an active or former military service member, you could participate as a mentor and help out a fellow soldier by being a friend and supporter. To learn more about the Carver County Veterans Court, please contact the Mentor Coordinator at 612-868-6592.
