Near the end of May 2020, a small group of alcoholics’ (founders), originating from the original 247aaonline (24/7) platform started to meet and discuss the possibility of creating a new A.A. meeting space. It would be based on the 12 Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous and would facilitate 7-8 meetings per day. But on Tuesday, June 2, 2020, the original 24/7 platform was in jeopardy of being shut down for good, leaving hundreds of alcoholics lost – again. Thus, the founders decided to redirect everyone to this new site and a new platform with 24-hours of A.A. meetings was born.
This new platform known as aaHomeGroup (aaHG) has served millions of people in recovery to this very day. It uses the same format that was launched on March 17, 2020, with 99% of the same fellowship and service of trusted servants. The crucial difference is that the entire enterprise is now being fastidiously operated on the ethics and actions provided to us in the 12 Traditions, enacted by trusted servants who are elected to serve.
Under this format, our elected Steering Committee guides the growth, development and goals of the platform through frequent Group Conscience Meetings, where all ideas are heard, and each member has a voice and vote in all major decisions. aaHG has been a rousing success because of the universal insistence that we stay close to the principles laid down by the founders of A.A.
aaHG now has a very healthy, organic process that is fueled by the worldwide need for one alcoholic to connect to another alcoholic and share their common experience. These early victories and successes at reaching the "still sick and suffering alcoholics" around the world has been a tremendous encouragement to the hundreds of people who worked so hard to launch this enterprise. Since those early days, aaHG has welcomed over two million attendees.
On June 4, 2022, we celebrated the second anniversary and had 19,368 consecutive hours of continuous A.A. meetings. At an average of 122 people served per hour in meetings, we have welcomed over 2,362,890 people.
