Carbon Veterans Treatment Court
The Carbon County Veterans Affairs office is looking for volunteer mentors for the Veterans Treatment Court.
Mentors serve as sponsors to veterans in trouble with the law due to addiction and other issues.
Mentors must be either male or female veterans, preferably having served in combat but not required, who are willing to assist the person by appearing at court appearances with them, spending some time outside the courts and being available to talk or visit the veteran when needed.
A variety of veterans are needed for the mentor program because participants can range anywhere from someone who was deployed recently to someone who served in combat decades ago.
