Mission

The Joint* Area 30/Boston Central Service Correctional Facilities Committee meets the 4th Thursday of the month at Central Service in Boston. Our responsibilities include working with the correctional facilities in Area 30 to assist in bringing the AA message behind the walls. We currently offer a service helping inmates who are being released from prison connect with AA members in their communities called the Prerelease Contact Program. AA’s who are interested in corresponding with an inmate by mail or being included on a 12-step call list to serve as contact points for those getting out of prison should contact Boston Central Service for particulars.

Activities

We have available LIPS (Literature in Prisons Service) posters for any group in Eastern MA that wishes to collect conference approved literature which can be brought to Boston Central Service for redistribution to AA’s in prisons, where allowable. The poster will cover one side of a cardboard carton. Big Books, 12×12, Grapevines, pamphlets, or any other conference approved literature is always in great demand.
