Assistance League of the Eastside is a force for good in our community.
Thousands of women, men, and children are assaulted in the State of Washington each year. When survivors are treated at hospitals, their clothing is often taken by law enforcement for use as evidence. Assistance League of the Eastside works with hospitals throughout the state to provide essential care items and new clothing that can be worn home after treatment. We strive to restore dignity at a time when these individuals are most in need of comfort and security.

It takes a village to make the Assault Survivor Kits program a success. Assistance League of the Eastside works with 34 hospitals across the State of Washington to deliver Assault Survivor Kits to individuals at their time of treatment. We are so grateful to the nurses and hospital personnel who work to get these kits into the right hands at the right time.
