Accessibilities Committee

See Main Committee Page for meeting dates/times

The Accessibilities Committee assists AA members who have a variety of needs in accessing the AA message in AA meetings, Twelve Step work and other AA services.  While there are no special alcoholics, there are alcoholics who experience access barriers to receiving the AA message.   For some, a six-inch step can be an insurmountable obstacle.   A locked access door, blocked ramp or parking problem can make it impossible to get to a meeting.   Some members are ill, homebound or living in retirement or convalescent homes; others have hearing or vision loss, learning, reading or information processing challenges; and still others are elderly, use wheelchairs or canes, or have other mobility needs.   Literature may be hard to understand.  Childcare issues may make it impossible to attend regular meetings.  Remote geography or cultural differences may hinder contact with other members.

You are invited to attend our meetings and see if this is a type of service work you would be interested in.   The coffee is free.
