On November 7th, The Houston Area Intergroup contributed $400 in scholarships to the Texas D.A. Retreat Planning Committee for two newcomers to attend the 2022 Living Your Visions Retreat at Camp Allen, December 2-4, 2022.

The purpose of the scholarships is to provide financial assistance to two newcomers from Texas who are unable to afford the weekend retreat.

Criteria for scholarship:

a. Has been in D.A. less than six months.
b. Has decided to work the Twelve Steps.


Planning Committee members will announce the scholarships at D.A. meetings starting November 8, 2022. The scholarships will be awarded to the first two D.A. newcomers who call the Planning Committee Secretary.


Both scholarships are valued at $200 each for a double room. If the scholarship recipient would like to reserve a single room, they must be able to pay the non-refundable $70 balance no later than Friday, November 25th by sending payment to the Treasurer, Alice J. via Venmo @Alice-Jefferson.

The scholarships will be paid to Camp Allen, not to the scholarship recipient. A sample spending plan for additional expenses, such as transportation to/from Camp Allen, etc. is on the retreat website at https://www.texasdaretreat.com/resources.

If a scholarship recipient ends up not attending the retreat, for whatever reason, the scholarship money will be used to fulfill the Retreat Planning Committee’s contractual obligations with Camp Allen.
