We consist of approximately 182 local volunteers who give more than 27,000 hours of service each year. Our philanthropic projects are made possible by donations, grants, our thrift shop proceeds and the one major fundraising event each year.
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.
We are guided by the Bylaws, Policies and Standards of National Assistance League® which was founded in 1935 and incorporated in 1949. There are currently 120 chapters, Assisteens®, and chapters-in-formation located throughout the United States.
National Assistance League® was the first nonprofit, nonpolitical, nonsectarian organization founded in the West which recognizes the potential of volunteers helping those less fortunate to a better and more meaningful life. Chapters are autonomous tax exempt, charitable corporations, whose Philanthropic Programs are actively controlled and administered by chapter members to serve the specific needs of the local community.
Assistance League® of North Coast is dedicated to serving the needs, primarily of children, in the communities of Carlsbad, Oceanside and Vista, with the goal of providing a positive starting point for academic success.
