Circles of Support & Accountability (CoSA) - Ottawa General Donations

My Message

CoSA is a unique approach to public safety – (extra)ordinary citizens assist people who have been incarcerated for committing sexual offenses in their effort to develop a meaningful and crime-free life upon release from prison. Trained and screened volunteers meet regularly with their 'core member’, helping with reintegration obstacles and challenging problematic behaviour that may lead to reoffending. CoSA mottos: No More Victims and No One is Disposable speak to CoSA's restorative justice principles. 

Every dollar invested in CoSA-Ottawa will save $7 on welfare, policing, courts, emergency, social services and incarceration down the line. And CoSA is effective too! Research shows that those involved in CoSA have a re-offence rate 70-80% lower than those not involved.

CoSA is something Canadians can be proud of! CoSA began in Canada more than 20 years ago, and is now operating in 18 Canadian cities and many countries world-wide, including the United Kingdom, United States, France and South Korea. We can all be part of the solution!
