In the absence of physical meetings at the club, we are offering information about online/phone meetings. Those can be found under the Meetings menu. We realize these are challenging times for everyone especially those of us with addiction issues, however technology makes it possible to still connect to each other and stay clean, sober and healthy in recovery. We are so grateful for your support and now you can still support the club and practice the 7th Tradition at virtual meetings through Venmo, our ID is @DupontCircleClub. More information can be found under News & Events

Hello DCC friends and family,
Well, the groundhog predicted six more weeks of winter, but my inner groundhog feels like this COVID thing is on endless loop.
I miss you. I miss the Club. I miss face to face and I miss hugs. I miss cookouts and celebration cake and I miss finding parking and the Metro.
Now I will turn to gratitude just like you’ve all taught me. Thank God for meetings, and fellowship and my sponsor and women in the program. Thank God for literature, meditation and finally, even though I cringe to say it, thank God for Zoom.
The last 11 months have made me the Club’s in house Zoom expert, any
problems with any meetings and people get in touch. I’m grateful to be of service in that way. In fact, the service I do for the Club keeps me sane when my routines are all shot to hell.
DCC still has a lease there on Connecticut Avenue; it still has employees who need to eat. People still drop by for chips and literature and Will holds down the fort. Thank God for that – it is an undeniable comfort to me.
That fort still has expenses. And Venmo is just not the same as a basket passed around the room. If you haven’t given – we need you now.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – the best possible way to support the Club right now is to sign up for monthly giving. We have 74 people signed up to support the club on a monthly basis. I’m one of them. We will fall short this year without more individual support than we are seeing right now.
Please help us keep those doors open for when we can return.
Please sign up for monthly giving on our donate page today.
If not, you can Venmo us: @dupontcircleclub
You can CashApp us: $dupontcircleclub
Your contribution today means that we will be here. We will be here for the next newcomer, we will be here for your next celebration, we will be here for the next 30 years. And that is the ray of hope I need, the solution to this seemingly never ending situation.
Yours in service,
Dupont Circle Club
