The Veterans Court Technology Clinic was founded by the mentoring programs of the St. Louis Veterans Drug Court, Veterans for Peace and the Employment Connection. The Employment Connection, at 2838 Market Street, donated the entire second floor of their facility. It was wired by local volunteers and set up to accommodate many functions: classroom, technical lab, and an AA meeting room. Developing computer skills is not the only objective for VCTC. As mentioned on the home page, we also provide a safe environment for those needing the right kind of space to heal. veterans in St. Louis
