Central California Correctional Facilities Committee
"I am responsible.
When anyone, anywhere reaches out for help,
I want the hand of SA always to be there.
And for that: I am responsible."
Thank you for your interest in this rewarding service! Our incarcerated brothers & sisters in SA desperately need sponsors, meetings, & literature:
Only 1 in 20 requests for a sponsor are ever met.
Only one facility in the state of CA holds SA meetings.
Many prison officials are indifferent to the needs of these men & women.
Various forms of abuse, including murder, are common threats from their fellow inmates.
Suicide is common.
The needs of this community are terribly underserved by those in a position to do so - other recovering sexaholics. Prior incarceration is NOT a requirement for this service - ANY member of SA is qualified.
The Central CA CFC needs your help with the following services:
Prison Sponsorship: If you have 6 months of sobriety, and are working the 12 Steps with a sponsor, you may be able to become a Prison Sponsor. A packet has been developed to addresses the special needs of this form of sponsorship. Local weekly workshops can also provide you w/ support, fellowship, & feedback when writing to sponsees. More info about this particular service is available HERE.
External Outreach: You can help carry the message to prison officials/staff/volunteers who need more info. You can also help start/attend meetings in facilities where requested. More info about this particular service is available HERE.
Connections: You can help parolees connect with a local SA fellowship prior to or just after release. You can also help convicted offenders find a sponsor who can help them work the steps prior to their incarceration.
Please don't hesitate to contact Brian Z. at 209-606-1766 /firstname.lastname@example.org to request more info and/or get involved.
