On Tuesday, May 14, 2013, at 3 p.m. EDT, the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans (NCHV) Technical Assistance (TA) Center will host a training webinar entitled: Meeting Legal Needs of Homeless and At-Risk Veterans: VHA Programs for Justice-Involved Veterans.

Earlier this year, the NCHV TA Center hosted a training webinar on best practices for meeting the legal needs of homeless veterans to remove barriers to employment. This training introduced successful court models that connect veterans seeking treatment to needed legal services that prevent incarceration. When asked for additional needs after this training, webinar participants overwhelmingly requested more information on engaging with partners at their local VA Medical Centers to provide legal services.

This Level II Training Webinar will feature issue-experts from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Veterans Health Administration:

  • Sean Clark, National Coordinator, Veterans Justice Outreach, and
  • Jessica Blue-Howells, National Coordinator, Health Care for Reentry Veterans.

For the past seven years, the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) has been providing direct outreach to veterans re-entering the community after serving a term in prison. Additionally, for the past four years, VHA has been providing direct outreach to veterans involved in arrests, jail incarceration, and treatment courts. Participants in this webinar will obtain a baseline understanding of the needs of justice-involved veterans and two VHA models that have been developed to assist veterans along the continuum of justice involvement.
