Many of us know someone whose life has been impacted by alcohol abuse or addiction. If you are interested in helping others who are suffering and trying to get help, the neighborhood nonprofit Maggie’s House, a free recovery place for women near White Rock Lake, offers volunteer opportunities.

Attend a foundation meeting the first Sunday of each month to learn more about the program and ways to help.

Maggie’s also has recently announced that it will host open AA meetings for men and women Sundays from 3-4 p.m. The house is located at 1302 Redwood Circle, 75218.
