The purpose of the Tidewater Intergroup Council of AA Corrections Committee is to coordinate the work of individual AA members and groups who are interested in carrying our message of recovery to alcoholics behind the walls through correspondence and meeting. Also, to set up means of smoothing the way from the facility to the larger AA community through prerelease contacts.
Our goal is to ensure that the Tidewater Intergroup Council of AA has a presence in area correctional facilities.
We intend to carry the message of hope to those who cannot attend meetings on the outside, and initiate pre-release contacts.
CORRECTION VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
Volunteers are needed to do 12 Step Work with Pre-Release, Correspondence and Meetings.
Attend an AA meeting inside the facility.
Must have 1+ years sobriety and pass background check. 12 Step completion preferred, but not necessary.
Small Change Can Make A Big Difference
AA Literature for Correctional Facilities
Donations placed in THE PINK CAN are separate from the 7th Tradition collection and used to purchase General Service Conference Approved Books, Literature, and Pamphlets for AA Members and those with a desire to stop drinking who are incarcerated in our local Correctional Facilities.
Tidewater Intergroup Representatives are asked to bring the contents of THE PINK CAN to the Correctional Committee Chair at the Intergroup meetings each month. Thank you for your participation.
