Volunteer Opportunitites in Portland

Volunteer Opportunities in Portland;
You may know that we are seeing new ACA groups pop all the time. But did you know that we have been running a meeting in a minimum security addiction treatment facility here in Portland for the last three years now? The facility is called Columbia River Correctional Institute and it is often where male inmates go to be readied for release in their last year or so of incarceration. You can read more about the facility here;

The group meets Monday evenings from 6:00 to 7:30pm and it varies in size from 4 to 15 men that attend regularly. I am looking for more volunteers that would like to join us from time to time that see this as an opportunity to do service as part of their recovery. A background check will be required and is paid for by the Department Of Corrections.
I find this service work to be tremendously rewarding and has become an integral part of my recovery.
For more information please contact me at;

Yours in service,
Michael
