Circles Of Support and Accountability
CoSA Vancouver / Fraser Valley
Member of CoSA Canada
CoSA is a unique and innovative community justice initiative for post release support and accountability of sex offenders in and by the community. CoSA VFV also provides education about online sexual offenders and community sexual abuse and how to create safe communities for all.
CoSA VFV MISSION AND VISION
Envisioning a society that actively seeks to reduce the occurrence and re-occurrence of sexual interference and sexual assault, and recognizing that mitigating the occurrence of sexual offending is aided more by pro-social engagement rather than by a shunning that leads to anonymity and isolation, CoSA VFV’s Mission Statement holds:
Our goal is to substantially reduce the risk of sexual victimization of community members by assisting and supporting released individuals in their task of integrating with the community and leading crime-free, responsible, productive, and accountable lives. CoSA VFV also engages and educates the community in order that our communities and its members become more effective in preventing sexual offending.
