Celebrating 10 Years of CODA: Connecting on Disability and Abuse

 
Speaker Series Event Invitation
 
Ten years ago a committee called CODA:  Connecting on Disability and Abuse was formed.  Chaired and led by community members and managed by Crime Prevention Ottawa, CODA is the little committee that could.  By bringing together people living with disabilities and service providers we have been able to explore issues affecting vulnerable adults from home takeovers to fraud and scams.
