1 Anaheim Marriott Anaheim, California May 28-31, 2014 Vet Court Con Veterans fought for our freedom, now it s our turn to fight for theirs

2 Dear Friends and Colleagues, Welcome to the 2nd Annual Vet Court Con! It is my honor to welcome you to Anaheim for what will be a historic gathering of the brightest minds in criminal justice, treatment, and military/veterans affairs. In December we came together for the inaugural Vet Court Con, and in the months since Veterans Treatment Courts have continued to spread across the nation. Our collective mission over the next four days will be to ensure that Veterans Treatment Courts continue to develop as the most innovative, unique and effective solution to veterans coming into contact with the justice system as a result of substance abuse and/or mental health conditions. This conference will provide you with the opportunity to share your ideas and expertise, make meaningful connections, and get reenergized for the critical work you do day in and day out. To aid in this mission, Justice For Vets has assembled over 130 hours of cutting-edge education. Whether you are an experienced Veterans Treatment Court professional or new to the model, this conference will give you the education you need to further your work on behalf of our nation s veterans. Additionally, we are honored that this year s Vet Court Con will once again feature a Boot Camp for volunteer veteran mentors. The Justice For Vets Mentor Corps exists to provide Veterans Treatment Courts with trained mentors ready to assist in the transformation of veterans in your programs. You will not want to miss the swearing in of the 2nd class of volunteer mentors during the Closing Ceremony on Friday morning. Thanks to you, Veterans Treatment Courts are forever changing the way veterans in the criminal justice system are assessed, sentenced and treated and for that this nation owes each and every one of you a debt of gratitude. Together, we are making great strides towards our mission of putting a Veterans Treatment Court within reach of every veteran in need. I look forward to working with all of you as we continue our march towards this important goal. Enjoy your conference! Sincerely, Melissa Fitzgerald Senior Director Justice For Vets

12 Notes

13 2014 Anaheim, CA Veteran Mentor Boot Camp GRAND BALLROOM A/B Wednesday, May 28 through Thursday, May 29 V eterans Treatment Courts thrive, in part, because they facilitate veterans in the community to be of service to their fellow veterans in need. In Veterans Treatment Court, veteran mentors volunteer their time and energy to be of service to veterans who need help. The Justice For Vets National Mentor Corps gives veterans a critical role in the community, and a sense of purpose that can only be achieved when one veteran saves the life of another. Serving in the Veterans Treatment Court unit allows them to serve shoulder to shoulder with dedicated judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, law enforcement, and treatment providers. Boot Camp will give volunteer Veteran Mentors the training they need to serve in a Veterans Treatment Court. By completing the Boot Camp, Veteran Mentors will be equipped to offer peer support to their fellow veterans, but also assist with housing, employment linkages, job training and education, transportation, disability compensation claims, discharge status and other linkages available for veterans at the local, state and federal level. Together as one, The Justice For Vets Mentor Corps builds on the undeniable truth; there is no bond as strong as the one that exists between those who have served their country. Co-Master of Ceremonies RanDee McLain and Stacy Hester will emcee the Veteran Mentor Boot Camp.
