Veterans Justice Outreach Program

Summary of Services Provided
The mission of the Veterans Justice Programs is to identify justice-involved Veterans and contact them through outreach, in order to facilitate access to VA services at the earliest possible point.
Detailed Services

VA is making a system-wide effort to ensure access to services for the justice-involved Veteran population at risk for homelessness, substance abuse, mental illness, and physical health problems. The Veterans Justice Outreach (VJO) program was created to provide timely access to VA services for eligible justice-involved Veterans to avoid unnecessary criminalization and incarceration of Veteran offenders with mental illness.

A justice-involved Veteran is: (1) A Veteran in contact with local law enforcement who can be appropriately diverted from arrest into mental health or substance abuse treatment. (2) A Veteran in a local jail, either pretrial or serving a sentence; or (3) A Veteran involved in adjudication or monitoring by a court.

The VJO Specialists provide direct outreach, assessment, referral, and case management services to justice-involved Veterans in local courts and jails, and liaison with local justice system partners.
