Correctional Facilities Committee

About the Correctional Facilities Committee

The Correctional Facilities Committee "concern is the 'alcoholic behind-the-walls', whether in a long- or short-term institution". This committee schedules prison commitments and provides information and literature to prisons and other institutions.

Volunteers bring A.A. meetings to the prisons and give alcoholics an introduction to AA on the "outside."
