Mission Statement

The First Step House, is a non-profit organization was chartered by the State of Illinois for the sole purpose of rehabilitating the man addicted to Alcohol.

Meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous held at the house are for the recovering alcoholic, and comments at these meetings should relate only to Alcohol.

The house is only open one hour before, and one hour after A.A. meetings. We ask that you please observe the hours posted outside the entrance doors as a courtesy to our residents.

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
