What is Uptown?
Uptown House is a great old house located at 1344 Summit Avenue in St. Paul where AA and Al-Anon meetings are held every day.
Because AA groups do not own property, the Uptown founders in 1975 formed the non-profit corporation Uptown Foundation, Inc. This foundation purchased the house and is responsible for the maintenance and preservation of it for the sole purpose of providing space for AA and Al-Anon meetings.
A second non-profit corporation named Uptown Group, Inc. was formed to manage the many AA meetings held at the house. The bylaws of Uptown Group created a steering board to foster and assist the activities of the house’s many AA groups or squads, as well as the Al-Anon groups. You can reach the steering board by email at firstname.lastname@example.org), or leave a paper message in the drop box (by the literature rack) at Uptown House.
