Cape Atlantic Intergroup invites you to participate
in our “3rd Legacy of Service”…
volunteer to help with “12th Step” work:
Answer the “CAIG Hot Line” at home or our Office:
Our “Hot Line” Telephone Service often has open 2-hour slots where you can answer calls to Cape Atlantic Intergroup for a variety of service related issues… everything from local Meeting Information to helping that struggling alcoholic who is making contact with us for the first time! Our Phone Coordinator and the Phone Committee has set the following “guidelines” for those interested in answering these important phone calls to the Intergroup:
To answer phones at the Intergroup Office or to take these same calls from your home, using our call Forwarding” feature, we ask that you have at least 6 months of continuous sobriety. These commitments are for a duration of 2 hours. Coordinating for available open slots will be done by our Phone Committee Chairperson. Contact our Phone Coordinator if you’re interested.
Phone Coordinator: Shirl R.
Open Phone Slots:
Tuesday 8-10 AM
Wednesday 8-10 PM
Saturday 2-4 PM
Join our “12th Step Call” Group:
As a phone Answerer, you are NOT expected to arrange to visit a first time caller. We maintain a list of individuals willing to do this 12-step contact work. Our “12th Step Call Group” is always seeking volunteers to be added to our list. Of course it is strongly suggested that 12th step visits be done by a minimum of two persons. Your primary function as a member of this 12 Step Call Group will be to begin the process via a phone call to the inquiring new member. Your number will NEVER be given to the caller….rather, you will be called by our Phone Answerer first…to inquire if you are available. The caller’s number will be given to you to return the call.
HELP CARRY THE MESSAGE to an Inmate:
Area members take weekly men’s and women’s meetings into the Atlantic County and Cape May County Justice Facilities. If interested OR IT HAS BEEN A YEAR SINCE YOU LAST APPLIED, you are required to submit clearance paper and attend orientation at the facility before being allowed admittance.
Please Email HIChair@capeatlanticaa.org or leave a message at our office 609-641-8855 to inquire about open time slots. Some of our volunteers enjoy the personal satisfaction of ‘seeing the light of hope’ in the eyes of the inmates who attend these meetings.
