History of Atlanta Chapter
On September 29, 1982, a small group of women took time out from jobs and families to attend a meeting at the Atlanta Historical Society. They went to learn more about a national organization called Assistance League, a non-profit dedicated to helping people in need in their communities. Thirty-four women formed a guild with Prime Time Treasures chosen as the first project. They sold arts and crafts to raise money, sometimes out of the trunks of cars. A few years later, a small building in Chamblee, fondly known as “The Mouse House,” was leased as the first shop. In 1987, we were chartered as the 74th chapter of National Assistance League and only the second chapter formed east of the Mississippi River.
