The Home Away From Home Group needs volunteers!
We meet Thursdays, 7-8:30pm, and Sundays, 2-3:30pm, in Deer Ridge Correctional Institute (DRCI), near Madras OR. DRCI is a men’s minimum security prison.
We urgently need AAs — women or men — to make firm, sustained commitments to help maintain this corrections meeting. Thursday meetings are literature based. The 3rd Sunday is a speaker/ discussion meeting. Other Sundays are open discussion meetings. Attendance ranges between ~12-40 inmates of varying lengths of sobriety.
AAs interested in supporting the Home Away From Home Group must first attend as a “visitor” before beginning the process of becoming a “credentialed volunteer.” Visitor clearance usually takes 1 week; completing all requirements for volunteer credentials can usually be done in 3-6 months of 1st visit. Please contact Tim C (541-610-6404) for more information or to obtain a background check form.
