Westside Club’s Inclement Weather Policy

FYI: We’re OPEN!

Neither rain nor sleet nor snow keeps the Westside Club from openings its regular schedule. Please be safe in the snow or whatever may be thrown your way…We may not all be here, but then again, are we ever?

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering to help the Westside Club is a great way to be of service. We are always looking for volunteers — especially for club the events. You will stay away from your addiction, meet new people, and contribute.

Other organizations working with substance abuse need help too. Check out our recovery resources page to see a list of recovery resource links to contact them to see about volunteer opportunities.

To be included on a list of Twelve Steppers or to volunteer to work the AA hotline for WAIA (training is provided), go to the WAIA Web site and contact them for more information.

For those of you who want to volunteer, or for institutions who want the Westside Club to post a volunteer opportunity, stop by the snack bar or call 202-333-0218.
