We are a 501(c)(3) philanthropic nonprofit, nonpolitical, nonsectarian, all-volunteer organization of 135 members. The money for our programs is generated from grants, donations and special events.

Our Assisteens® Auxiliary of 63 amazing young adults provide energetic support that helps our organization enjoy continued success and effective delivery of our philanthropic programs to those in need.
