How will your contributions be used?
The two primary expenditures for the Veterans Court Mentor Project are emergency funds for veterans assigned to the Veterans Court, and training expenses for veteran mentor volunteers.
1. Funds for veterans may be distributed only after other, more traditional sources are confirmed to be not sufficiently responsive. Response time is the usual problem. Funds may be distributed for wives or co-parents when their use will include supporting the veteran’s children. Where possible, the payments will be given directly to service providers vice the passing through the veteran. Typical emergency funds requirements include overdue rent with eminent action threatened by owner, overdue utility bills with eminent action threatened by service provider, overdue car payment (maximum of two) where car is necessary for employment, and small numbers of one day bus passes distributed as required.
2. Qualification training for volunteers is generally provided at no cost, such as the six-hour Navigator Training class provided by the Arizona Coalition for Military Families. Costs associated with applying for a Criminal Background check (less than $50) will be reimbursed. In the future, costs for continuing education or Boot Camp Training such as that provided by the Justice for Vets organization will be funded by the VCMProject instead of by the individual.
