Our Friends

Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACA) is a 12-step based support group for people who want recovery from families of dysfunction, families that contained, among other things, alcoholism, drug abuse, physical abuse, sexual abuse, mental illness, emotional abuse, and abandonment issues.

ACA members facilitate the meetings and, like Alcoholics Anonymous, the participants are anonymous.

There are no dues or fees.

ACA-RGV is sanctioned by the national World Service Organization of Adult Children of Alcoholics and is the only ACA meeting between Brownsville and El Paso.

ACA meets every Tuesday at 7:00 PM in the UUFHC Sager building.  For more information, contact Gloria at 956-458-1217 or Shirley at 956-588-5333.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meets every Sunday at 1:00 pm in the UUFHC Sager building.

This is an "open, big book study" meeting.  That means it is open to persons who have a desire to stop drinking, and to those who have an interest in AA.

The meetings start with reading from the book Alcoholics Anonymous with discussion following.  An ability to read English is not necessary.

Call to Action-Rio Grande Valley (CTA-RGV)  CTA-RGV is a local chapter of Call to Action, a national organization that began in 1976 as an outgrowth of the United States Conference of Bishops’ Call to Action Conference.

At the conference, more than 100 bishops were among the 1,340 voting delegates and the 1,500 observers.  At the end of three days of discussion and debate, the assembly declared "the church must stand up to the chronic racism, sexism, militarism, and poverty in modern society. And to do so in a credible way the church must reevaluate its positions on issues like celibacy for priests, the male-only clergy, homosexuality, birth control, and the involvement of every level of the church in important decisions."  Website

LUPE: La Unión Del Pueblo Entero.  There are over 1,000 colonias in the Rio Grande Valley.  Over 200,000 residents live in these unincorporated neighborhoods that lack basic infrastructure like streetlights and adequate drainage.
