The Alcoholics Rehabilitation Association of San Francisco runs a residence for 50 men and women in recovery from alcoholism called First Step Home. Their approach is based in the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous and they host three AA meetings a week. The organization dates back to 1954 when eleven members of Alcoholics Anonymous met to discuss ways of helping the alcoholic by creating a home where the recovering alcoholic could safely live and find mutual support from people with the same problem. It was one of the first residential programs of its kind in San Francisco. The major of ARA's Board of Directors are recovered alcoholics -- which helps keep the organization honest and true to its mission. There is a tremendous need in San Francisco for more supportive housing for individual in recovery. ARA depends on support from its members and the puhlic.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I lived at First Step Home which ARA operates. The residents are serious about their recovery and are their become they want to stay sober. The staff are experienced, fair and committed to the residents' recovery from alcoholism and addiction.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Caring and encouraging.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Help some many more people stay sober and lead productive lives.
