While there are no special A.A. members, many have special needs, or are homebound. We define A.A.’s with special needs or shut-ins as persons who are visually impaired, hearing impaired, chronically ill or homebound and those with limited reading skills. The goal is to make A.A. accessible.

The members of the Accessibilities Committee explore, develop, and offer alternatives to make the A.A. message and participation in our program available to everyone.
