Thank you for your interest in the Veterans Accessing Lifelong Opportunities for Rehabilitation (VALOR) Program.


This program is supported by a grant from the Texas Veterans Commission Fund for Veterans’ Assistance.


The Fund for Veterans’ Assistance provides grants to organizations serving veterans and their families.


The mission of  V.A.L.O.R. and its personnel is:


A.   To equip Veteran offenders with cognitive tools and decision-making  strategies to address errors in



B.   To facilitate positive changes through participation in counseling, group activities, and skills-building



C.   To model pro-social behaviors fitting of a U.S. Veteran throughout the program participation.


D.   To motivate participants to exhibit positive behaviors by assisting in re-establishing control in their lives.


E.   To create an environment where Veteran offenders will be safe to grieve, process, and heal from the

       invisible wounds of their service.


Our philosophy is that Veteran offenders should be held strictly responsible and accountable for their actions, while being provided alternative resources for positive and pro-social behavioral changes.
