Public Outreach Reminder

Al-Anon has but one purpose: to help families of alcoholics. But if they don't know about Al-Anon, Al-Anon can't help them. Public Outreach informs the general public through the media, professionals, facilities, and organizations about who we are, what we do, and how to get in touch with us. Our goal is to attract to our program those whose lives are or have been affected by someone else’s drinking, so that those who need our program can find the help and hope we offer. We also strive for name recognition and credibility as a community resource. (From Guideline G-38, Area Public Outreach Coordinator.)

Lois W wrote in "Lois Remembers": “If…Al-Anon groups do not let the public know of our presence, perhaps by announcing the time and place of meetings in local newspapers or by some other means, we block ourselves off from those in need.” (page 194)
