2019 State of the Court
In 2019, California’s 31st District Congressman Pete Aguilar (pictured above) visited a veteran’s graduation ceremony to hear first-hand how treatment courts change the lives of veterans in our community.
Shelter Court is a specialized court session held every month in the cities of Upland and Fontana for homeless individuals who need to resolve open misdemeanor and infraction cases. Homeless individuals can start the process of restoring benefits and obtaining their driver’s license which were once on hold. Since 2017, Shelter Court has served over 400 homeless individuals with open misdemeanor or infraction cases and annually participates in the Stand Down event for homeless at-risk veterans in the Inland Empire.
