The mission of the Kansas City Municipal Veterans’ Treatment Court is to offer treatment and services which address the issues of substance abuse, mental health, and other barriers to leading law abiding, productive lives within our community. We will reduce drug and alcohol abuse, lower recidivism rates, and lessen the financial impact on our community through providing comprehensive treatment services and helping our veterans regain their wholeness within the country they have defended.
We hope to soon be able to provide solid data that will show the success of the court program through decreased recidivism into the legal system, rates of successful treatment program completion, maintenance of clean/sober lifestyle, employment, and safe housing.
The Mission of the Veterans’ Mentoring Program is to make certain to the best of our abilities that no one is left behind. We will find them, offer them assistance, assess their needs, and help them solve their problems. We will support the veteran through their readjustment to civilian life, assist the veteran navigate through the court, treatment, and VA systems, and act as a mentor, advocate and ally.
