Amicus Veterans Justice Program

Resources and Mentoring Services for Veterans in the Criminal Justice System

Veterans know what it can be like trying to get reestablished in community after a long tour of duty. Now imagine adding the stigma of time in prison to that challenge.

The Amicus Veterans Justice Program can help them navigate the processes necessary to access the many resources available to veterans, as well as assisting them with searches for jobs, housing and other essentials of daily life, through connections to the Veterans Administration and other important community resources.

This service is provided free of charge and is available to any armed services veteran who has been involved in the criminal justice system.  We serve veterans regardless of the era of their service, their discharge status or their crime conviction.

The Amicus Veterans Justice Program is affiliated with the Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) program, a U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs program operated through the Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans.  Additional services are available to Veterans who qualify for SSVF.
