Your gift to CoSA-Ottawa will make a difference!
Though we receive support from the United Way and private foundations, your contribution will help us to make up the shortfall in our budget which will allow our staff to continue supporting and supervising our over 50 volunteers who work with 14 core members.
CoSA is made possible by committed volunteers, making it a cost-effective, community-based response to the reintegration needs of people released from prison and a means to enhance community safety. Nevertheless, it is essential to adequately fund qualified staff so that the circles can be managed safely and effectively.
CoSA is the only community based organization working specifically with this population and it works too! In fact, independent research shows that the CoSA approach reduces rates of reoffending by 80%, which is why there are CoSA sites in 18 cities across Canada. And, based on the success of the Canadian CoSA model, CoSA now operates in many countries worldwide.
Although this initiative sounds like an essential service that strives to ensure the safety of our citizens – primarily our children – securing adequate funding for CoSA can be difficult due, in part, to the stigma that is associated with people who commit sexual offences and the challenge of aligning with private funders’ priorities.
