Assistance League of Santa Ana
In 1935, a group of women met in the home of Katharine Irvine to begin a journey of helping young people in the greater Orange County area. That first meeting and many that followed led to the formation of Orange County's first chapter of Assistance League. Today over 2750 children, teens and seniors in Santa Ana receive help from Assistance League of Santa Ana. With over 450 volunteers of all ages, Assistance League Santa Ana continuously serves the greater Santa Ana community since 1935 without issue of race, creed, or belief. It is our greatest motivation to help children and their families help themselves. Through programs of subsidized dental care, free eye exams and glasses, school uniforms and supplies to elementary students, gifts to seniors, support to college students through mentoring and scholarship... members actively make a difference.
Assistance League is a nonprofit corporation integrated in the community whose support comes from the community and stays in the community.
