“I am responsible . . .
When anyone, anywhere reaches out for help,
I want the hand of A.A. always to be there.
And for that: I am responsible.”

One of WAIA’s goals is to have a live person answer the telephones seven days a week, 24 hours a day to reach out to the still suffering alcoholic.

This is accomplished in two ways. The phones are answered in the office itself from 10:00 AM – 10:00 PM daily by Desk Volunteers. From 10:00 PM-10:00 AM the phones are forwarded to the personal phones of Night Watch volunteers.

The four daytime shifts are coordinated by the Office Assistant:

  • 10:00 AM-1:00 PM
  • 1:00 PM-4:00 PM
  • 4:00 PM–7:00 PM
  • 7:00 PM–10:00 PM

If you are interested in answering the phones at the WAIA Office, contact volunteers@aa-dc.org or call (202) 966-9115!
