Home Away From Home Group

The Home Away From Home Group (HAFHG) of Alcoholics Anonymous meets every Thursday, from 7-8: 30 pm, and Sunday, from 2-3: 30 pm, in Deer Ridge Correctional Institute (DRCI) -- a men’s minimum/ medium security prison near Madras OR. Meeting attendance ranges between ~8-40 inmates of varying lengths of sobriety. Thursday meetings are AA literature based. The third Sunday is a speaker/ open discussion meeting. Other Sundays are open discussion meetings. The first Sunday of the month we hold our business meeting and also celebrate milestones in sobriety.

 

The Home Away From Home Group needs volunteers! We currently rely on approximately five AAs to cover the 104 meetings scheduled for 2018. We have not had a “dark night” -- meetings canceled due to insufficient volunteer coverage -- in years. We urgently need AAs -- women or men -- to make firm, sustained commitments to help maintain this corrections group. AAs interested in attending the HAFHG must first be cleared to enter the facility as a “visitor” before beginning the process to become a “badged volunteer.” Visitor clearance normally takes 1 week; completing all requirements for volunteer credentials can often be done in 3-6 months. Please contact volunteers: Tim C, (541) 610-6404 for information on supporting the HAFHG with your physical presence.

 

The Archives Committee Needs your help!!!

Preservation and history of our experience is vital to those yet to come.  Would you like the District 5 Archives display or an Archives presentation to come to your home group or activity?  Do you have something from the past that you would like to add to our Archives? Would your home group consider developing a written record of its history?  Is there an “old-timer” in your home group whose story should be preserved? For details, contact your District 5 Archive Chair at: archives@district5aa.org
