Assistance League, the parent organization of Assistance League of Southern Utah was established in Los Angeles in the early 1890s. Assistance League was the first nonprofit, nonpolitical, nonsectarian organization in the west to recognize the potential of volunteers in helping those less fortunate to a better, more meaningful life. Annually, Assistance League returns almost $44 million to local communities, assisting 1.5 million people. This is made possible by the 22,000+ member volunteers in 120 chapters who contribute 3 million service hours. Since 1958, more than 3 million children have been assisted.
- In March 2008, Southern Utah became a guild of the parent organization, and obtained 501(c)(3) nonprofit status under National Assistance League’s group exemption.
- In 2013, Southern Utah became the 120th chapter of Assistance League.
- In 2015, Southern Utah applied for and was granted individual 501(c)(3) status.
Our all volunteer organization has nearly 100 members and continues to grow.
