Mission Statement

Assistance League member volunteers transforming the lives of children and adults through community programs.


Assistance League of Charlotte was founded in 1992 & became the 93rd chapter of National Assistance League in 1995. National Assistance League is a nonprofit organization that puts caring & commitment into action through community-based philanthropic programs. Programs are designed to address the issue of upward mobility by providing children an opportunity to succeed. Funds raised are returned to the community through philanthropic programs: Operation Check Hunger, Heart of the Home, Operation School Bell, Mecklenburg County Teen Court, and Assistance League of Charlotte Scholarship Fund. Operation School Bell provides new clothing for children in need in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. The program's goal is to enhance self-esteem, promote learning and encourage regular school attendance. Operation Check Hunger feeds at-risk school children. Heart of the Home provides kitchen items necessary to prepare, serve and store food for meals to families moving into permanent housing. Mecklenburg County Teen Court is an alternative justice system for juveniles. This juvenile-based justice system places emphasis on accountability, positive peer influence, youth empowerment and involvements. Scholarship Funds awards college scholarships to Charlotte-Mecklenburg graduating high school seniors. Community Scholarships are also awarded to children to enrich their lives with music lessons, art classes and group performances through Arts+. It also funds activities at YMCA Day Camp and provides scholarships to the Community Culinary School of Charlotte.
