Established in Los Angeles in the early 1890s Assistance League was the first nonprofit, nonpolitical, nonsectarian organization begun in the West to recognize the potential of volunteers in helping those less fortunate to a better, more meaningful life.
The organization of dedicated women continued to expand its community service and refine its philanthropic philosophy. In 1935, a national organization of Assistance League was organized with the vision of a nation-wide effort to carry the principles of Assistance League to other cities.
