South Jersey Al-Anon Family GroupsSouth Jersey Al-Anon Family Groups banner 


Welcome To Al-Anon/Alateen South Jersey Information Service (SJIS)

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).


~~~~ Today’s News~~~~

SJIS VOLUNTEERS NEEDED (click for flyer)!!!
The Vice Chair becomes the Chair position when the current Chair’s tenure is complete in Nov 2015.

Without a Vice Chair, we will have no Chair for next year. It is a legal requirement that we have a Chair, Treasurer,

and Secretary or the South Jersey Information Services (501C organization) has to close. We almost closed

a few years ago. We hope to avoid the same situation coming up in the fall. We understand how important

meetings are but without SJIS, Assembly and WSO, Al-Anon would have no structure or policy.

We also have a number of trustee positions whose terms will be up in Nov 2015. Our 501 guidelines do not

permit us to continue in trustee positions past the prescribed time limits. We need:
