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.
