Home > About Us

Assistance League of North Coast is a community of hands-on volunteers dedicated to enriching the lives of those in need.  Established as a guild in 1992, and a chapter in 2000, Assistance League of North Coast is the 105th chapter of National Assistance League.

We consist of approximately 150 local volunteers who give more than 15,000 hours of service each year.  Our philanthropic projects are made possible by donations, grants, our thrift shop surplus and the one major fund raising event each year, our Autumn Fantasy.


Our members give their time to the community through work on various committees and programs of their choice, as well as through appointed or elected offices that they hold.
