Mission Statement

Colorado Circles of Support & Accountability envisions a world where there are NO MORE VICTIMS and NO ONE IS DISPOSABLE. To achieve this vision, Colorado CoSA will support and encourage the development of high-quality, high-fidelity local Circles of Support & Accountability wherever they are needed. Our commitment is to assist local sites with community education and volunteer recruitment, to offer consistent effective volunteer training by CoSA experts, and to collect data that will ensure CoSA program integrity as demonstrated by reduced recidivism and safer communities.

Description

The Circles of Support & Accountability model was developed to decrease re-offenses by people convicted of sexual offenses as they integrate into the community after being released from prison. CoSA brings together 4 or 5 highly trained, highly supported and highly valued community volunteers who meet regularly with the core member, in a group and individually, to support him in living a crime-free, productive, healthy life. Circles typically last a year or so and, when they're done right, they drive down re-offense rates by 83%. Amazing and cost-effective!

Colorado CoSA serves as a technical assistance organization for local Circles in doing their important work. Colorado CoSA provides structure and training that ensures that Circles are operating in a way that will guarantee the safety of the community, the safety and quality of experience of the volunteers, and the success of the core member.
