President’s Message

Assistance League of Santa Ana is a philanthropic organization united in purpose and dedicated to making local lives in Santa Ana better.  Our organization is loyal to these core values:

Commitment — Providing compassionate and caring services to individuals in Santa an is the standard and primary measure of our organization.  We believe we exist for the sole purpose of providing philanthropic services to meet the challenges posed by a diverse array of compelling individual and community needs.

Ethics — Integrity and authenticity in communication and action best demonstrate the goodness and decency of the member volunteers of the Assistance League of Santa Ana.

Accountability — Full accountability is the responsibility of our leaders and members and is an appropriate expectation of this organization by those who support Assistance League of Santa Ana’s work and those who receive its services. We believe that this responsibility demands and drives prudent fiscal and physical management, transparent internal and external relationships, viable program assessment and reasoned evaluation of personnel and organizational performance.

Respect — We believe in the intrinsic value of those we serve and of those with whom we serve. We believe that we can best demonstrate our respect for this value by providing fair and equitable treatment for our member and community volunteers, the recipients of our services and our donors and funders.

I’m delighted to be President of this 82-year old organization, and proud of what we do for our local community.

— Susan Dobak, President, Assistance League of Santa Ana
