The Wilson House of East Dorset and The Griffith Library as active members of the community, strive to responsibly maintain the historic birthplace, memory, spirit, and purpose of Bill Wilson, a co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous. As a nonprofit charitable organization, we provide facilities, primarily for the benefit and use of members of Alcoholics Anonymous, Al-Anon and related 12 Step organizations, and their families, to pursue educational, spiritual, and emotional recovery and growth.
We will maintain a warm, accepting environment for recovering people and their loved ones to enjoy, food, lodging, educational and spiritual retreats, 12 Step meetings and fellowship, along with the simple joy of experiencing the atmosphere that influenced Bill Wilson’s journey in life.
We will accomplish this by creating and maintaining an involved Board of Directors and a solid management structure, with the intention of functioning based on the principles espoused by AA’s Steps, Traditions and Concepts; incorporating sound management practices.
As a Board, we need to maintain responsible financial and administrative practices, including planning for capital improvements, future growth, funding maintenance projects and providing resources to ensure the long range viability of the Wilson House.
