Formerly incarcerated individuals regarded by VT Department of Corrections as at high or moderate risk for re-offense are given the opportunity to participate in Circles of Support and Accountability and Service Navigation.
Circles of Support and Accountability (CoSA) are teams of community volunteers committed to supporting a formerly incarcerated individual for a full year after their release through weekly meetings and contact in the community.
Service navigation supports an individual returning to the community after incarceration to access the help they need to develop a positive connection to the community and address obstacles to re-integration. The LRC reentry team collaborates closely with multiple service partners in the Lamoille Valley community.

When we lose hope, we lose everything. Being a part of a CoSA is an opportunity to mentor, coach, empower, and inspire individuals to start over.
