Carrying the message to inmates in Texas is rewarding and uplifting service work. There are several service opportunities from which to choose, and most do not require entering a correctional facility. Each service function is an important part of the overall CFC mission to bring the AA message to incarceratedinmates.
The District 2 CFC Committee meets the 2nd Sunday of every month at 1pm at the Two Four Club in New Braunfels, Texas. If you are interested in this type service work, but are not sure how to start, come to the committee meeting to meet the other committee members and get more information about AA in correctional facilities.
