The purpose of the Special Needs/Accessibility Committee is to explore, develop and offer resources to make the AA message and participation in AA available to everyone you reaches out for it. This can included people who are blind or visually impaired; deaf or hard of hearing; chronically ill, physically disabled or homebound, and many others who have less visible challenges.
