Welcome to The Men’s Home
A s stated in its charter, the purpose of The Men’s Home is “to provide a home-like environment for alcoholics who are sincere in wanting to recover from alcoholism: to provide food, bed, information, fellowship and the sharing of spiritual values which are a part of that recovery; to expose the alcoholic to other recovering alcoholics so that, together, they can regain self respect, confidence, and a useful place in the community; and to help attain sobriety through the principles of Alcoholics Anonymous.”
For the newly recovering man, The Home provides an alternative residence and family environment. It encourages new patterns of social relationships and supports the healing process of alcoholism recovery.
With a singular focus on providing a living environment to help men in early recovery transition to full, healthy, and functional lives, The Men’s Home is not a boarding house or a treatment center. It is not formally affiliated with Alcoholics Anonymous, although it is supported by many members and groups of the Washington-area AA community through financial and other contributions, resident sponsorship, and fellowship.
The Men’s Home has served recovering men for over 60 years with the sole support of private contributions, which are tax deductible.
11/27: The Sunday breakfast and meeting are cancelled due to renovation. We will have coffee and donuts if you’d like to say hello. Our apologies and thanks for your patience.
Men’s Home Holiday Party
W e’ll be hosting our annual Fall Holiday Party & Fundraiser on Saturday, December 3rd from 6:30 – 9:00 here at the Home.
This is a chance to spend some time with your neighbors in recovery, enjoy some good food and hear from our special guest speaker. For us it’s also a chance to thank you for your continued support.
For this year’s meeting, we’re excited to welcome Arnold R., from the Baltimore area to share his message of hope. He has served on the Board of the AA Grapevine and well as the General Services Board. We’ll also feature remarks from Sharon H. (our Chairman) and Mark C. (our Manager) who will talk about this year and our plans for next year.
This year’s dinner will be catered by Los Tios of Del Ray, along with the surfeit of desserts that you graciously bring along (!)
It promises to be a great time and one that we hope you’ll come and share with us. After all, we can’t do all the talking and eating.
Once again, that’s:
Saturday, December 3rd
