Chapter 952 will provide mentors for a new veterans court in Greene County, MO.
Mentors arranged by the chapter will primarily be a friend and perhaps share a coffee run once a week with military veterans in the criminal justice system.
The new treatment court dedicated in September will join other existing courts in the county, including drug, domestic violence, and mental health courts.
The treatment courts are tailored in a way to keep offenders from committing new crimes, and to teach life skills.
The opening of the new veterans court will be coupled with the services of a new VA clinic expected to open in 2018 or 2019.
