Volunteer Vets Help Law-Breaking Veterans

Volunteers 518x316

Santa Cruz County in California has set up a new program called <a href=”http://www.santacruzsentinel.com/general-news/20150316/volunteers-to-help-troubled-veterans-improve-their-lives-in-santa-cruz-county”>Veterans Treatment Court</a> to help veterans accused of nonviolent crimes. Similar programs have already been started on the East Coast and in other counties in California. The wisdom of the program is that it partners-up accused veterans with volunteers who are themselves veterans (and, accordingly, are both savvy with the court processes and other services and credible to the accused veterans).
