Our Mission

The mission of the Halifax Community Chaplaincy Society is to enable healing within individuals and communities by compassionately facilitating the reintegration of ex-offenders using the best of evidence-based practices.

 

We accomplish this mission by:

  • Providing a visible and active pastoral presence in the community to offenders, ex-offenders, their families and CSC staff.

  • Helping offenders develop spiritually as we accompany them during the re-integration process.

  • Working with faith communities to coordinate and deliver spiritual care in support of prison-related issues.

  • Liaising with individuals, community agencies, churches and both government and non-government organizations to provide effective pastoral care.

  • Being the local representative organization supporting the implementation of Circles of Support and Accountability (CoSA).
