The Art of Welcoming Today

My heart often thinks of the many families and friends of alcoholics who have been unable to attend meetings or have not found Al-Anon yet due to various reasons over the past several months. Across the state, some groups are able to start resuming face-to-face meetings, some are transitioning with a virtual component, and some remain temporarily virtual. The virtual world has ushered in new opportunities for people to find help and hope in Al-Anon while at the same time has added some challenges and obstacles.

The attached memo shares some of my thoughts on welcoming in today’s new world. I hope you find it helpful as you carry the message of help and hope to family and friends of alcoholics. Keep the Traditions, Slogans, Service Manual, and the God of your understanding close! As you extend the hand of Al-Anon/Alateen, thank you for your service to our worldwide fellowship and its members. All my best to you and your group.

Your friend in service,
Lori F.
Delegate, Panel 61

Welcome to the PA Area Al-Anon Web Site

There is a message of hope and help in the program of Al-Anon Family Groups. Women, men, and children who were once lonely, lost and helpless because of someone’s drinking, today have courage and confidence in Al-Anon and Alateen. They have discovered friends who understand, as few others can. They have found the tools to help themselves – which can indirectly help their alcoholic relatives or loved ones. Contentment and even happiness is possible whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not. Alateen, a vital part of the Al-Anon Family Groups, is for younger members seeking help while walking through life with an alcoholic parent, other close relative or friend. Teens meet to share their experience, strength, and hope, gaining a better understanding of the disease of alcoholism and themselves. The support found in Alateen helps with personal development and the troubled thinking that is often associated with growing up in an alcoholic home.

Let It Begin With Me… When anyone, anywhere, reaches out for help, let the hand of Al-Anon and Alateen always be there, and Let It Begin With Me.

Are You Ready? – “Newcomer Preparedness Checklist”

With the holiday season on the horizon, October through December is the busiest time of the year for many people. It is also a period of added stress, especially for families and friends of alcoholics. It is an opportunity to remind us to prepare ourselves and our groups to welcome newcomers who find their way to Al-Anon.
