The North Shore Alano (NSA) at 607 Lake St. in Evanston, was established in 1981, to provide meeting space for Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), Al-Anon, Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACOA) and Al-Ateen. The NSA relies solely on contributions from our members for financial support. The NSA is aided in governance by a Board of Directors (BOD) that meets frequently and conducts the business affairs of the organization.

We offer a variety of in-person – Onsite-Meetings, Zoom – Online-Meetings and Hybrid* meetings which take place seven days a week.

If you are new to the AA fellowship or if you need the hand of AA, please call the Chicago Area Service Office for assistance at 312.346.1475. You also leave a voicemail at 847.328.9830 and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
