The only purpose of the Hospital and Institution Committee of Alcoholics Anonymous is to carry the message of Alcoholics Anonymous to the alcoholic who is confined. The activities of this committee are based on, and governed by, the Twelve Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous.
The Northern California (NorCal) H&I Committee is a Ninth Tradition service committee, directly responsible to those we serve: i.e. the AA groups of Area 53, which covers all of Alameda County, including the El Cerrito Fellowship. To that end, we encourage your group to send a voting H&I group representative to the Area Business Meeting. As with other service committees, the function of this representative is to bring the voice of the individual group to the NorCal Area 53 H&I Committee and take vital information about H&I back to their group.
Visitation and Sponsorship At San Quentin
Purpose: to provide a system to connect inmates who wish to avail themselves of outside sponsorship with outside volunteers willing to perform that service. Volunteers for this service CANNOT also go into the institution as regular H&I Meeting Volunteers.
