Opportunity Description:

Volunteer Opportunity: Board member, Halifax Community Chaplaincy Society  The Halifax Community Chaplaincy Society works with individuals who are transitioning from incarceration to community. By working with former offenders, we seek to ease their transition into community and to reduce recidivism. Our twin principles are: “No more victims” and “No one is disposable”. Our two main programs (both supported through federal funding) are: Faith Community Re-Integration Program (FCRP) acts as bridge for former offenders who wish to establish, or re-establish, relationships with faith communities. Circles of Support and Accountability (CoSA). Grounded in restorative justice principles, CoSA reduces sexual victimization by assisting people who have been incarcerated for sexual offences and are being released into the community. We are looking for committed individuals to join our volunteer Board. We welcome individuals from any faith background who view issues of criminality and incarceration through the multiple lenses of compassion, support, re-integration and accountability. We welcome inquiries from anyone interested and are particularly seeking individuals who might consider taking on (with support from the existing Board) the role of Vice-Chair or Secretary to the Board. If interested, please contact d.ginn@dal.ca.
