You can message, email or give us a call. Or better yet, come see us. We love our members and guests.
FYI: We only answer messages, chats, or emails after everyone at The Clubhouse has been served. Calling us is still the fastest way to reach us.

In 1978, the Five Points Alcoholics Anonymous Group moved to King Solomon Lodge. Initially, a "chip club," called the Jefferson Alcoholic Foundation, Inc. was formed to handle business operations of the lodge which the Five Points group occupied. Soon, group members realized the club was attracting Alcoholics Anonymous members who were not members of the Five Points AA group.
In addition, the need for a place for recovering alcoholics to spend time was recognized. JAFI was formed in 1980, to provide the place recovering alcoholics needed. In addition, JAFI served as the legal entity for AA groups needing meeting space in Birmingham’s Southside area as well as leasing office space to the Birmingham AA Intergroup Central Office.
In March of 2003, JAFI suffered the loss of the “Old House” due to fire. Built in 1890, the historical home built to house a physician's family served as our home since 1980. After the fire, JAFI moved into the “speaker building,” a much smaller structure on the same property and has been providing recovery services there ever since.
