About Justice For Vets
Our Mission: Veterans fought for our freedom; now it’s our turn to fight for theirs. We enable the creation of a nationwide network of veterans treatment courts that is transforming the way veterans are handled in the criminal justice system. In doing so, we will keep veterans out of jail and prison, saving their lives, their families, and their futures, while saving tax dollars for the American public.
Many organizations exist to provide programs and services to United States veterans; unfortunately, few of these programs serve veterans involved in the justice system. Justice For Vets is dedicated to transforming the way the justice system views and serves our veterans, leading the national effort to put a veterans treatment court in reach of every veteran in need. We are committed to ensuring that no veteran is left behind by providing training and technical assistance to help communities bring together local, state, and federal resources to directly serve veterans involved in the justice system due to mental health disorders, trauma, and substance use. In doing so, we keep veterans out of jail and prison—preventing the loss of one of our nation’s greatest assets to our families and communities—and connect them with the benefits and treatment they have earned, all while saving tax dollars for the American public.
