Circles of Support and Accountability (CoSA)

Circles of Support and Accountability (CoSA) is a community-based response for individuals who have been incarcerated for committing a sexual offence(s), are being released into the community, and wish to carry out crime-free lives.  Those individuals are referred to as ‘core members.’  Each core member is supported by a circle of volunteers who work with them to achieve goals and avoid reoffending.

Specifically, the CoSA mission is to substantially reduce the risk of future sexual victimization by assisting and supporting released individuals in their task of integrating with the community and leading a responsible, productive, and accountable life.
