Project Description

HELPING COMMUNITIES THROUGH HIGH IMPACT VOLUNTEERING

Veterans Helping Veterans – Join Seminole County Veteran’s Treatment Court’s Mentor Team

MENTOR PROGRAM

Many returning Veterans suffer from not only physical injuries, but also the mental scars of war including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, traumatic brain injury, depression and substance abuse. Many times these factors are the primary reason our Veterans become involved in the criminal justice system. Local Veterans have volunteered to help their peers through the Veterans’ Court process by becoming mentors.

The Seminole County Veterans Treatment Court Mentor Program provides peer-to-peer confidential support and assistance by Veterans to our criminal justice system involved Veterans. Our mentors will help our Veterans readjust to civilian life, introduce them to various Veterans’ organizations, help them to connect with treatment providers, and assist them in navigating the VA system.

Are you a Veteran? Would you like to join the Mentor Team? Contact Nicole Preston at npreston@vcifl.org or 407-625-6010.

Studies have shown that social isolation negatively impacts the physical, emotional, and mental health of mature adults. VCI is fixing this problem by encouraging mature adults to use their energy, creativity, and experience to change the lives of other Central Florida residents..

RSVP volunteers serve as often as they like in areas such as education, food security, and health. They play a critical role with educational success, human needs, homelessness, health and wellness, hospital support, and senior services. RSVP Volunteers must be at least 55 years old, receive training for their service area, and are honored at a recognition banquet every year.

Across Seminole, Osceola, and Orange Counties, 408 volunteers have served over 29,000 hours in efforts to better the Central Florida community. RSVP has programs in almost any area you could want to volunteer. RSVP volunteer coordinators work with prospective volunteers to find the right place where they can make the most impact. Together, VCI and you improve the Central Florida area.
