Support SLV Alano Club

$2,323 of $5,100 goal

Raised by 30 people in 32 months
We are in need of funding to keep the doors open and continue to offer support and services to our Community!

What is an Alano Club and who We Are:
We are providing a safe, clean and sober club open every day for 13 hours a day. We provide a place someone can go for a meeting or in between meetings instead of relapse. There is always someone here to talk to and it only takes 2 to have a meeting. We are people in the grip of a continuing and progressive illness who's ends are always the same...., JAILS, INSTITUTIONS AND DEATH! We want to help those that want the help because the lie is dead! WE DO RECOVER!

One alcoholic/addict helping another is without parallel. And the only solution to this problem is a spiritual awakening that we each have to find through our own understanding. The SLV Alano club, I believe is the place to help people with that. We are a full service resource / assistance center, for people who want a new way of life without the use of drugs and alcohol. Recovery Is possible.

The events we hold here are open and everyone is invited so that our neighbors and the community knows we are here should they ever need us or if they just enjoy doing things clean and sober. We host flea markets, BBQ's, dances, dinners, sober sunday w/NFL Ticket and BBQ all day, Pool and DartTournaments and leagues. We offer food everyday, doughnuts Pastries, breakfast sandwiches , fresh made Deli Sandwiches all day, and a hot meal every evening for dinner. Food all we ask is that if you can afford it please leave a donation and if you cant it's no problem just enjoy it we are Blessed & grateful to Be able to be a Blessing.

We are here as a catch net for people who graduate from residential treatment centers and we are the "Catchers Mitt" to an institutions exit program. We have free WiFi and internet access through the use of our house computer. We assist with job searches resume writing and in certain cases offer some transportation if needed and if available. Depending on funding we have a couple of buses that we would love to be able to offer on a more solid basis. We would need funding for insurance permits and licensing. We are also going to be hosting parenting classes and anger management classes soon through existing county providers.  And soon would like to offer a food bank / Grocery distribution  program weekly to offer the residents of this community and neighboring communities in this county!

We are just renting this location here in Boulder Creek temporarily but we believe it needs to stay her and would love for a miracle someday soon to be able to hopefully purchase the building somehow. For anyone who believes in The power of prayer we just ask that you pray for that with us everyday! Thank you for your time, interest and any support you are able to help us with.

GOD Bless you

Sincerely,
SLV Alano Club

Our Local Alano club is struggling and in danger of closing . The Alano club is a clean and sober club for those suffering the disease of addiction . In this day and age many of us have been touched by this disease they say 1 in 3 households are affected by it, Either by a family member, friend or our self. We have been open for 10 months now since July 3, 2016. In that time many of us have found support, LOVE, friendship, sponsorship and most of all a power that is MUCH bigger than any of us that we call GOD!! It really is making a difference in our community. Please help with your generous donations.

The rent including Utilities runs us about $1800 a month. The food and supplies are usually donated by myself or a few of our solid members but that usually runs around an extra $400-$500 a month. We bring in approx $350-500 a month from Friday night bingo, which is growing and a lot of fun. Meetings about $90-$150 a month. Food donations aren't very much because we feed anyone that is hungry!! It is the front lines so we make sure that there is always food there. We are just a few men short of starting a PaPas parenting class which is funded by the county so it's free to any father or father to be. PaPas wants to start holding a class there once a month for the fathers here in the valleY.

With that class and our current revenue we should be able to pay the rent plus some operating costs. We are running solely on donations at this point and need your help! Anything you can do any amount will help tremendously! Thank you in advance for your prayers and / or any donations.
