We are Assistance League of Stockton, an all volunteer, nonprofit organization that is dedicated to serving the community through philanthropic programs.

We began as a guild in 1968 with a small group of dedicated women; in November 1973, we were chartered as Assistance League of Stockton, California becoming the 55th chapter of National Assistance League.

Through the years, we have worked to improve the lives of children in need through dental, cultural, basic-need, and literacy programs such as our Book Buddies Program. 

Our philanthropic programs are supported by proceeds from our thrift shop, many donations from the community, and generous grants from United Way of San Joaquin County, Stockton Olive Oil Project Charitable Organization, and Cortopassi Family Foundation, as well as many small grants from other organizations.  Donations are always welcome and are tax deductible as we are a 501(c)(3) organization.

Over the years, our hardworking, fun-loving member-volunteers have donated over half a million hours to benefit the Stockton Community in a variety of ways: working in the thrift shop, clothing children, working with children in the public schools, and improving the lives of both adults and their families. Seen below is one of our members with a very happy family getting new shoes for their children.

OUR MISSION, why we exist: Assistance League of Stockton is an all volunteer nonprofit organization dedicated to serving our community through philanthropic programs.

OUR VISION, what we aim to be: We strive to help children and adults in our community who need assistance.

OUR VALUES, what we believe in:
Accountability and Ethics
Mentoring Leaders
Understanding, Patience and Respect
