5A is a 501(c)3 organization that has been in operation for over 50 years. We have been serving the Phoenix community by supporting those seeking recovery from substance abuse. Our mission is to affirm human dignity. We do this by providing safe, clean, sober living environments to newly sober humans that truly have a desire to change their lives.
We are changing the conversation about addiction and shedding light on substance abuse disorder as mental health, making recovery more accessible.
All of the funds raised will go directly to programming costs like cost of living, transportation to and from meetings, food, and educational programming and support for the humans we serve.
We can’t wait to see you there!
If you would like to volunteer at the event please contact development@5A.org. We will need assistance checking people in and sorting out t-shirts, handing out water, encouraging participants.
