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 Las Vegas is part of a national organization.

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

Attempting to meet previously underserved needs, Assistance League Las Vegas supports many philanthropic programs that provide services to every age range in the community.

Our Thrift Shop was named Best of Las Vegas in 2017 and is staffed and managed entirely by our member volunteers. Donations are always welcome and are tax deductible.

Assistance League Las Vegas has two auxiliaries: Desert Sage and Assisteens®. Desert Sage membership provides an evening volunteer opportunity for those who do not have the daytime hours to volunteer.
