Welcome to JAFI Bham!

Since 1980, our mission has been to provide the Greater Birmingham Area Recovery Community a clean and safe environment to hold 12-Step meetings, and to gather socially in the spirit of recovery from alcohol and drug addiction.

We feel it is important to organize & hold ongoing social activities & functions for members to enjoy. Our goal is to use all funds in excess of operating expenses to improve the clubhouse.

Thank you for your interest in the Jefferson Alcoholic Foundation, Inc. (JAFI)!  

Like many nonprofits and service organizations, JAFI was hard hit financially by COVID-19. JAFI stayed closed for periods of time to be compliant with local guidelines, particularly given the small physical space. Our income was limited, particularly from meeting group rent and coffee/beverage sales, which has meant operating at a deficit. Our core monthly operating expense (including rent, utilities, payroll) is $6500+ per month, and current income from operations is not sufficient to cover those costs. Even during "normal" years, JAFI has always relied on donations to help make ends meet. 

Many of you have relied on JAFI for recovery over the years, even if you may not have been there for a meeting or coffee in recent times. We hope that you will be able to support JAFI in its "recovery" during this challenging time.  Keep in mind that all donations are tax-deductible.

We recognize that some people may be in a position to give more than others, and we will continue to be grateful for all donations, regardless of how big or small. 

We have multiple ways to donate (Venmo or check). You may also pay in person at our coffee bar.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to our manager, Chris J (jafibarmgr@gmail.com) or our board.

Thank you so much for your support and consideration.
