Bridging The Gap – Corrections and Institutions

Omaha Area Bridging The Gap –

Chair: Dedric – 

Meets third Thursday of each month at 6:30 pm at the Central Office

August Report:

  • Committee did not meet this past month mainly because the dates were mixed up. We will meet
    this month.
  • We have been able to facilitate / resume the Thursday detox meetings at Douglas County detox.
    Funds have been allocated for approximately 30 ‘Where and When’ booklets from the
    institutions budget.
  • Meetings are averaging 5-7 attendees, spilt evenly male to female. The facility will only allow
    two volunteers to attend at this point.
  • We also provided 10 ‘Big Book’ soft cover and 10 ‘Twelve x Twelve’ soft cover books to the
    Heartland Family Services. These will be used by the counselors to help facilitate recovery and
    sessions which will be integrated into their recovery curriculum. They were excited to have
    them and we allocated funds from institutions for that.
  • Thank you to Rob and Terry for helping to facilitate this and preparing the material for pick up at the Central Office

The purpose of a corrections committee is to coordinate the work of individual A.A. members and groups who are interested in carrying our message of recovery to incarcerated alcoholics. Bringing meetings and literature into facilities, raising awareness of the Corrections Correspondence Service (C.C.S.) among “inside” and “outside” A.A. members, and helping inmates transition to a local A.A. Community through Prerelease contacts are just some of the activities corrections committees support.
