With Dani's help

Behind heavy steel doors, a young woman catches hope, thanks to a local BTG volunteer

As I visited the jail, I saw amazing things happening. Dani had started a morning meditation circle. They were seeing new hope for themselves.

I have been bringing the AA message into our local county jail for over nine years. During that time, I’ve seen some of the women who struggle with recovery come in and leave, only to return again.

I would smile and jokingly say, “What are you doing here?” Their response was usually, “You know how it is.”
