National Assistance League:  Our History

Over 100 Years to Taking Care and Giving Back
Assistance League was formed by compassionate women who came together to make a difference in their communitites.  It was the first nonprofit, nonpolitical, nonsectarian organization founded in the West to recognize the potential of volunteers in helping those less fortunate to a better, more meaningful life.

Through the gift of service to their communities, Assistance League chapters continue to fulfill Anne Banning's philosophy of volunteer service across the United States:   

"To act as a friend at any and all times to men, women and children in need of care, guidance and assistance, spiritually, materially and physically."
