Celebrating 85 years of service in Santa Ana!

Assistance League of Santa Ana exists to serve the unique needs and challenges of students, children, families and seniors in Santa Ana. Our services are locally designed, funded, organized and carried out to fit these needs. As one of National Assistance League’s 120 Chapters, Assistance League of Santa Ana members are incredibly generous and imaginative. Each one is highly motivated to effect change in Santa Ana. Each one has the spirit to get the job done, whatever it is and whatever it takes. We function to the best standards of nonprofit governance.

We are dedicated to making local lives better.

Assistance League of Santa Ana was recognized in 2022 by Santa Ana City Council Members Penaloza and Sarmiento for their exceptional programs serving the City’s poorest population.

Assistance League of Santa Ana members are available to conduct tours of our facilities for you or your organization and explain how our various programs create a better community.    Call 714.664.0547 for information.

Food insecurity is a serious issue in Santa Ana.  Last year Assistance League of Santa Ana was able to provide school clothes to over 4,000 students and food throughout the year to over 700 of their families.

The SOC It to Hunger program was established in 2019 to stock an emergency food pantry for Santa Ana elementary schools. Three times each year, open-air food distribution events are held during weeks when the schools are closed for holidays and breaks.

Help fund our ongoing efforts to provide both fresh and packaged food and hygiene products to Santa Ana families that desperately need it. Just click the link below to get started.
