The Winooski Community Justice Center is looking for volunteers for the Circles of Support and Accountability Program (CoSA). As you may know, the State of Vermont Department of Public Safety has authorized vulnerable incarcerated individuals to return to their communities due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These individuals are often marginalized and have few, if any, natural social supports. During this difficult time of isolation and stress, the Winooski Community Justice Center has partnered with the Essex Community Justice Center to ensure that CoSA volunteers continue to provide this essential service. CoSA volunteers are often the key to creating meaningful connections and achieving successful reentry for those returning to our communities.
