When essential needs are met in the community, families will flourish
When we put a smile on a child’s face, we all smile
When we clothe a child, we give them confidence to succeed in school
When we inspire a young person, we can change the path of their lives
Located at 2611 West Avenue, Assistance League of San Antonio, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, serves the San Antonio community. We strive to transform lives of children and adults through our various programs. Nearly 50 percent of the funds needed for these programs are raised through Thrift House sales.
