We have eight wonderful programs that need your help. Getting involved in our programs and the community is very uplifting.

 “It has been a joy for me to be involved in so many of these programs, from THRIFT HOUSE to OSB to Fresh Start. At the end of the day, I love seeing people smile.”

–Pam Ingalls, member


You will be welcomed with open arms by our 350 members, and it won’t take long to get to know everyone

“I have met so many truly smart, kind, like-minded friends during my eight years with Assistance League. While we are giving back to the community, we also are forging ties to a community that provides us support and love no matter what life throws our way. I treasure the people I have found through ALA!”

–Lida Zolno, member


Opportunities abound everywhere at Assistance League for you to learn new skills and keep the old ones burning.
