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.
This year’s event was held on Monday, September 22, 2014, and was, once again, a great day on the course. We got to see our old friends, met some new ones and put another outstanding day into the record books.
The annual fall golf benefit is a major fundraising event for The Home. Thanks to your help we can continue our work in the community, assisting men in the crucial early days of recovery. Thanks to all who played and sponsored the day; your support for this event and others throughout the year keep our doors open.
If you did play or sponsor a hole, we will have a photo gallery online soon where you can see pics of the event and order copies if you wish. You should hear from us by email, or feel free to send a message here with your email address so that we can send you a link.
