Al-Anon Family Groups are a fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics who share their experience, strength and hope with one another in order to solve their common problems and help others do the same. The only requirement for membership is that there be a relative or friend with a drinking problem. Al-Anon is a non-profit, non-denominational, anonymous support group.* SJIS serves Al-Anon members, member groups, and the public in South Jersey (south of Route 195 & Mercer County).

Currently, Marie B, Audrey G, Jennifer B and myself are on the trustee board for SJIS. I think we all would say it has been a growing experience to do Al-Anon work for our South Jersey community. I owe so much to Al-Anon for the life I live today and I understand that Al-Anon cannot continue to help folks like me without an active volunteer force. Service has made me feel more a part of Al-Anon as a global community.
We are in need of a Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, Public Outreach Trustee and a Group Services Trustee for next year. I will step down as Chair as of November 1, 2015 and will become Past Chair in order to help new members who are joining the board. All of our current trustees are willing to put in any time necessary to train new volunteers. Please consider giving some time back to Al-Anon in an SJIS position. Liz M., SJIS Chair
