An Invitation to do Service

What is the Role of the Hospitals and Institutions Committee?


 Hospitals & Institutions Committee (H&I) at the CoDA, Inc. level acts as a resource and support to those doing H&I service locally (taking CoDA meetings/resources/message into facilities–medical, penal, educational, and social services institutions) at all levels of the Fellowship (CoDA Service Conference, Voting Entity, Intergroup, local group, and individual).

The Committee meets every third Thursday from 6 to 7:30 US Eastern time zone via Zoom. We are working with members from other countries to guide them in developing H&I committees worldwide. We need sponsors to write to individuals in penal facilities in the United States, who cannot attend meetings outside the facility. If interested, please write to InmateSponsorship@PROTECTED

For more detailed directives about taking the CoDA message to codependents in institutions, please visit the CoDA website and go to the Service Info area click on H&I Main page. The H&I Service Handbook gives detailed information on going into a facility. If you haven't taken the survey, please do so.
