Veterans with police involvement, criminal charges, or incarceration often have difficulty navigating traditional justice systems and obtaining positive outcomes.  The VA has two programs that partner with justice systems to improve outcomes for those Veterans and their communities. This workshop will describe the missions, methods, and partnerships of those programs. Professionals who provide I&R to Veterans will learn how and when these programs can help, and how to refer Veterans to them in their communities.

Objectives:

  • Define the term “Justice-Involved Veteran.”
  • Describe the mission and main functions of the Veterans Justice Outreach Program.
  • Describe the mission and main functions of the Health Care for Reentry Veterans Program.
  • Refer justice-involved veterans to VJO and Reentry programs available in their localities.
