Welcome to Assistance League of Montgomery County!

Assistance League of Montgomery County is one of 120 chapters of National Assistance League whose programs help strengthen communities and transform lives of children and adults.  The success of Montgomery County’s philanthropic programs is dependent upon the dedicated volunteers who generously donate their time to make a difference in Montgomery County.

First organized in 1985 as Lake Conroe Auxiliary of Assistance League of Houston, Assistance League of Montgomery County is celebrating almost 35 years of serving Montgomery County.  With 41 members in 1985, the organization has grown to almost 240 members.

All the above programs are funded through the organization’s award-winning thrift shop, which is run solely by over 200 member volunteers.  In the fiscal year ended May 31, 2019, members gave almost 51,000 hours of community service and have returned over $6 million to Montgomery County residents since the organization began.  All monies raised in the thrift shop stay in Montgomery County.

Through the generosity of our community residents, the support of local individuals and organizations and the service of our members, Assistance League of Montgomery County truly provides essentials needs and transforms the lives of our community residents.
