Member volunteers are dedicated to ongoing support and a long-term presence in the community through hands-on involvement and innovative philanthropic programs. Assistance League of Las Vegas is part of a national organization.

Since its founding in 1976, Assistance League of Las Vegas member volunteers have consistently provided quality service to the Las Vegas area.
