Legal Services

There are a number of legal services in Maryland to assist veterans, current members of the military, and their families.  The MDVA offers a resource listing to individuals who are in need of this type of support.  Most programs require a military connection- veteran status, current member of the military or military family member.  The eligibility requirements are established by each respective program.

U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Programs for Justice Involved Veterans

Health Care for Re-entry Veterans (HCRV) Program

The HCRV Program is designed to help incarcerated veterans successfully integrate back into the community after their release. Components of the program include providing information to support successful reintegration to the community.  The program strives to ensure veterans do not enter homelessness upon release from incarceration.

Veteran Justice Outreach (VJO) Initiative

The VJO initiative is designed to help Veterans access VA health care, primarily mental health and substance use services.  The goal is to help veterans avoid unnecessary criminalization as a result of a mental health or substance use disorder issue.

Visit Health Care for Re-entry Veterans Program website for more information and to learn how incarceration may impact VA benefits.

To speak with someone regarding the program contact:
