The Accessibilities committee – formerly called Special Needs – offers resources to make the A.A. message and participation in our program accessible to everyone who reaches out for it. This committee provides resources for persons who are blind or visually impaired; deaf or hard of hearing; chronically ill or home bound, those who are developmentally disabled, and many others who may have less visible challenges.
