Emotional support meetings provide individuals required to register, their family members, and their friends, an opportunity to discuss personal challenges and share their experiences, strengths and hopes.
They are not the same as monthly ACSOL phone conference meetings. The support meetings do not discuss legal issues, bills, and laws.
They are based upon the format of 12 Step meetings. Media, law enforcement, parole, etc. are not allowed to attend meetings. There is no cost to attend.
The meetings are currently online using Zoom or phone. This may change over time depending on the course of the pandemic.
There are Emotional Support Group meetings on Thursdays and two Saturdays per month.
If you want to attend the meetings, you must first talk with the leaders of the meetings to ensure we don’t get inappropriate callers, and to protect the group’s confidentiality. To talk with the leaders, please email your name, phone, and the best times to call you to one or both of the following emails:
For the Saturday meetings, email email@example.com
For the Thursday meetings, email SOSgroup4u@gmail.com
After the leader talks to you and approves you, you will be informed of the schedule and how to connect.
