The National Veterans Technical Assistance Center (NVTAC) is hosting the webinar “Outreach Strategies: Veteran Treatment Courts and Employment Services” on Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. ET.

Founded in 2008 by a judge in Buffalo, New York, the Veteran Treatment Court (VTC) program model includes regular court appearances, treatment sessions, and drug testing with the support of an interdisciplinary team. The program connects veterans to a variety of resources, including employment services, and structured accountability to prevent them from reoffending. Homeless Veterans’ Reintegration Program (HVRP) grantees can play a critical role in meeting the employment needs of these veterans. This webinar will provide an overview of the VTC model, including the key partners required and outcomes achieved, and examine the partnership between an HVRP grantee and the local VTC.

The webinar will feature David Pelletier J.D., Program Director at Justice For Vets, Ronald Hill, Program Coordinator, and Paul Kutniewski, Intake Specialist, both from the Maryland Center for Veterans Education and Training, Inc. (MCVET) as guest speakers.
