BTG, Pre-release, Hotline Volunteer Form
If you would like to volunteer to provide a temporary contact for people who are coming out of institutions, or to volunteer for the Help Line, please fill out the following form and submit it. An email will be sent to NHAA Area 43 Treatment Committee Chair with the details of your interests.
Bridging The Gap is a program that provides temporary contacts for people who are leaving treatment factlities. Contacts agree to contact the person, take them to six meetings, introduce them to other AA’s, provide them with a meeting list, and in general, get them started. You are not volunteering to be a permanent or temporary sponsor.
The Prison Pre-Release program is similar to Bridging the Gap but for men and women who are getting out of incarceration. The NHAA Hotline volunteer will get calls from the Hotline answering service with the contact information of people who have called the hotline and wish to speak to someone from AA. These calls can be a simple as “where’s a good meeting” to complicated as someone who is in crisis and reaching out for help.
