RUTLAND COUNTY COMMUNITY JUSTICE CENTER

OPPORTUNITIES WE OFFER

Re-Entry Panels

Re-Entry Panels are made up of teams of 3-5 volunteers who meet with offenders and victims of crimes to address the harm caused by low to mid-level crimes in the community. The mission of the panels is to hold an offender accountable for the effects of their actions on others. They discuss the circumstances and impact of the crime and ways the offender can avoid making similar mistakes in the future.

Circles of Support and Accountability (COSA)

A COSA is a group of 3-5 volunteers who work with a person coming out of prison (Core Member) for a minimum of one year. As a COSA volunteer you will walk with a core member as he or she transitions from prison into the community. By offering your time, compassion and energy, you are joining a growing network of people who are committed to the safety of their community and the successful re-entry of core members.
