Government of Canada supports healthy reintegration in Abbotsford
“The Government of Canada is deeply committed to implementing evidence-based policies that are proven to prevent crime and victimization, and keep our communities and citizens safe. We know that community-led programs like the NOLA Reintegration project reduce crime and show that communities are best protected by a more responsive system that effectively rehabilitates and safely reintegrates offenders.”
– Jati Sidhu, Member of Parliament for Mission—Matsqui—Fraser Canyon
“No One Leaves Alone (NOLA) is a social reintegration project, partially funded by Public Safety Canada, which offers intense support for individuals who have been released from prison but face significant barriers such as mental health issues, substance abuse or addiction, disability or learning disorders, lack of healthy family support and relationships, or who suffer extensive trauma history. A circle of trained volunteers, along with the case manager, work with the individual for up to 18 months, helping to ensure the individual has a positive re-entry into the community.”
– Raymond Robyn, Executive Director, M2W2 Association – Restorative Christian Ministries
This project was funded under the Crime Prevention Action Fund (CPAF), which supports evidence-based projects that explore ways to minimize known risk factors associated with crime among vulnerable groups of the population.
From April 1, 2018 to March 31, 2019, the Government of Canada is supporting 59 CPAF projects across Canada.
Up to $35.4 million has been committed in 2018-2019 to support CPAF in the implementation and evaluation of crime prevention programs.
This project is an adaptation of the Circles of Support and Accountability model, a Canadian-made, community-based program recognized internationally for its effectiveness at lowering rates of reoffending and preventing victimization.
