Assistance League of Palm Springs Desert Area is an all volunteer nonprofit organization that was chartered in 1978 as the 58th chapter of National Assistance League. The chapter identified unmet needs in the Coachella Valley, developed philanthropic programs to meet them, funded this work and ran the programs with member volunteers. While the needs and the programs have evolved over time, this is the way the chapter continues its mission today to help those in need within our valley. The chapter has no paid staff.
