The mission statement for the Roseville Alano Club is to encourage, foster, promote and enhance the sobriety of recovering alcoholics as well as providing a safe and sober environment for those in the program and their families. Our club strives to save lives, one day at a time, by providing the facilities, resources, and amenities, for recovering alcoholics, drug addicts and their families to achieve positive lifestyle changes in the local recovery community.
Public Outreach Goals:
The Roseville Alano Club’s primary organizational goal is to provide a vital 12-Step meeting resource within the recovery network in the Roseville community. There are very few places in this community that are dedicated to housing 12-Step meetings and providing a safe and sober refuge for recovering alcoholics. Often, the people who attend recovery meetings at the Alano Club have no other place to go. The Roseville Alano Club’s role in the recovery community has become especially important as a poor economy and budget cuts are prevalent everywhere.
The Roseville Alano Club strives to bring public awareness within the Roseville community through recovery literature, schedule pamphlets, our website, Facebook and word of mouth. We operate under the philosophy of attraction over promotion, but our club does use these marketing tools to provide public awareness of our club’s resources. We house several different AA groups that provide over 30 meetings per week.
We also provide a large community outreach program to help find shelters, recovery homes and employment for those in early recovery, food and supplies for low income families, and full holiday meals for needy families. We also cater to children through holiday events with Santa Claus and gift giving, Halloween treats with fun activities, and Easter Egg Hunts and baskets for children of all ages.
Our club also plays a significant role in supporting women in distress and rape victims, providing the comfort, support and resources for safety and recovery. We also have a large role in helping disabled veterans receiving the medical and financial support needed for their long term prosperity.
Membership Goals: The club charges a small fee per member each month to help contribute to some of the operating costs. We provide free memberships for those who are financially unable to pay. Our club plans and promotes many events, including: game nights, social functions, book readings, televised sporting events, and holiday celebrations. This is a key component in providing a safe and sober environment, for members, family, friends, and guests to socialize, find enjoyment and most importantly, find recovery.

Organization's Use of Volunteers
The Roseville Alano Club has no paid staff, as all functions are performed by volunteers. Our office manager volunteers over 60 hours each week providing all the support for the day to day operations of the club. Our kitchen staff volunteers 40 hours each week in food/beverage preparation and service. Our maintenance officer keeps the club in working order.
As our building is over 60 years old, constant improvement measures are taken as funding is available.
Our members also play a key role in the volunteer process as they are the voice and representation of our club's mission to provide a safe and sober environment for those looking for recovery and personal lifestyle changes.
Volunteers meet on a monthly basis to address the business functions, processes, issues and concerns to help promote and enhance the sobriety of recovering alcoholics as well as providing a clean and sober environment for those in the program and their families. Volunteer work is the foundation for our success in achieving our organizational accomplishments.
We are always in need of volunteers!!
Our Board of Directors ultimately oversees all Club operations.
Alcoholics Anonymous is an international fellowship of men and women who have had a drinking problem. It is nonprofessional, self-supporting, multiracial, apolitical, and available almost everywhere. There are no age or education requirements. Membership is open to anyone who wants to do something about his or her drinking problem.
They are an international mutual aid fellowship whose stated purpose is to enable its members to "stay sober and help other alcoholics achieve sobriety." By sharing their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.
The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self supporting through our own contributions.
A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses or opposes any causes.
We are here to help!!
If you are a member of the Roseville Alano Club, and have to perform Community Service, we can help!! We offer an array of projects that we can work on to accomplish your commitment.
Often the most important benefit of community service is the opportunity to help others. Participating in it gives you the opportunity to know that you are improving someone's life and making your community better, and you get to see the direct impact of your work.
You can gain hands-on experience & learn a lot of skills while performing community service such as construction, painting, customer service, etc. Doing community service has personal benefits as well. It often makes participants more organized, responsible, and compassionate, which are all good qualities to have.
A final benefit is that you can meet a lot of great people while doing community service. Community service is often done in groups, so it’s easy to make friends with the people you are working with. You may also become friends with the people you are helping, especially if you volunteer at the same place regularly.
Upon completion of your project, you can receive a written verification of your hours worked.
Not yet a member of RAC, that’s OK, because $3 / day ..... or $15 / month can make you one!!
