Meet the Spokane Veterans Forum

The Spokane Veterans Forum (SVF) is a 501(C)(3), non-profit organization that provides mentoring, educational, therapeutic, and life enhancing services to military veterans referred from regional Veterans Enhanced Therapeutic Courts (VET Court).  The SVF was established in 2010. The SVF trains volunteer mentors and matches mentors with defendants.  Reports are regularly made to the VET Court probation officers regarding individual progress and compliance for the court ordered treatment reviews.  At the formal SVF monthly meetings, the veterans share a meal together and attend educational or therapeutic programs.  A celebration ceremony is also held to acknowledge graduates of the program.  Through successful participation in the SVF program and their individual respective treatment services, nearly all participating defendant veterans will have their offense dismissed or substantially reduced-all done with other veterans at their side.  The SVF Program prepares veteran defendants to take their place as upstanding citizens in society and saves the community the cost of incarcerations.
