The Lackawanna Veterans Treatment Court was the first of its kind in Pennsylvania when started in 2009 by President Judge Michael Barrasse, who continues to oversee it.

FNCB Bank’s donation will be used for essentials like clothing, rent, transportation, medical care, job counseling, therapy and support for participating veterans and family members. Since 2014, FNCB Bank has donated $55,000 to the treatment court.

The support of the Lackawanna County Veterans Treatment Court is part of FNCB’s larger Community Caring initiative. As a true, local community bank, FNCB is making a difference through volunteerism, donations and outreach programs.
