ABOUT US

Transforming Lives Through Education Since 1966

Assistance League of Houston is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization that removes barriers to education for at-risk, disadvantaged students of all ages, giving them hope and inspiration for a brighter tomorrow.

Celebrating More Than 50 Years of Service

Assistance League of Houston is an all-volunteer organization serving Houston since 1966. Our philanthropic programs have developed over the years into a singular mission to remove the barriers to education for students of all ages.

National Strength – Local Focus

Assistance League of Houston began in 1966 as the 31st chapter of National Assistance League®. Founded in 1919 as Assistance League of Southern California and incorporated as National Assistance League in 1935, there are currently 120 chapters throughout the United States.
Each chapter develops philanthropic programs to meet the needs of their local community. So, while we benefit from the full strength of our national organization, our funds are raised and spent locally to meet the growing needs of our community here in Houston.
