Offering both practical essentials and messages of support to local children in need, victims of assault, survivors of domestic abuse and the homeless, a group of Eastside volunteers quietly works to bring comfort and hope to these often unseen populations.
An all-volunteer non-profit serving the Eastside community through its philanthropic programs since 1997, the Assistance League of the Eastside is one of 120 chapters in the National Assistance League. Today, the Eastside chapter’s 159 members provide four vital programs to vulnerable local residents.

"Having extensively researched and written about homelessness in our region, I’ve long known this societal problem is buried beneath our wealthy sheen. That’s why I’m glad Assistance League of the Eastside is working to help the homeless, victims of assault and domestic violence, and kids in need, not only behind the scenes but also in public with its Operation School Bell program. I am a volunteer and plan to be one every year."
