The Texas Veterans Commission Fund for Veterans’ Assistance presented $3.3 million in grants to 13 organizations in the San Antonio area Sept. 1, including the Comal County Veterans Treatment Court.

Charles Stephens, County Court at Law No. 2 judge, accepted a check for $150,000 that will provide veterans in Comal County with veterans treatment court services.

"We really appreciate the Texas Veterans Commission's efforts and grant funding to help us help our veterans in need," Stephens said. "Thanks to their assistance, we have had 61 veterans graduate from the Eugene Hooper Veterans Treatment Court who are better prepared to be productive and meet life's challenges. We look forward to continuing to work with our veterans in need."

The CCVTC was established in 2015 by Stephens to provide military veterans with an alternative to the traditional criminal justice system. To learn more about the Comal County Veterans Treatment Court, visit
