What's happening to Houston AA after Harvey?
We are grateful to report that the Houston Intergroup office was spared significant damage from the storm. The office is now open Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 6:00pm.
However, we are sure that many of the 500+ groups that we support in the greater Houston area weren't so fortunate. Many other offices, groups, and members from around the country have contacted us with offers of support. Houston Intergroup is setting up a distribution center to coordinate help and replacement literature for those groups and members who lost A.A. material in the flooding.
If you, or your group, has extra Big Books or 12&12's that you could contribute towards this relief we'd greatly appreciate the donations. In addition, if you wish to make a monetary donation towards this work you can do so through PayPal on our website. (CLICK HERE for access to the page.) or you can mail in a check. Please mark all donations "HARVEY" so that we can segregate them.
Please send any materials to:
4140 Directors Row
Houston, TX 77092
If your group was flooded and needs some support to help carry the message, please contact us. As supplies arrive, we will be replacing destroyed literature where ever possible.
Please be patient with us as this program is ramped up. We will get materials available for your pick up as soon as possible. Also, we ask that groups that are currently closed contact us so that we can attempt to keep the list of over 2400 meetings per week up to date.
Intergroup stands by to help in any way that we can. But we do need support from those who were more fortunate that others.
In March of 2018 Intergroup Association, in its current form, will reach 55 years of carrying the message to those who still suffer. Since then, thousands of alcoholics have come to the Fellowship through those efforts, and we want to celebrate.
The June 15th through 17th “55 Years of Miracles” Convention will be one of inspiration, sharing, and FUN. We have outstanding speakers scheduled from around the country along with some “old friends” of the Houston area to entertain and stimulate you. As they share their stories, you will be invigorated and motivated in your own A.A. program.
