About Us

Assistance League of Wichita is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is transforming lives and strengthening our community through philanthropic programs in Wichita. Member volunteers are dedicated to ongoing support and a long-term presence in the community through hands-on involvement and innovative philanthropic programs.

The Wichita chapter was organized in 1984 with about 30 members, chartered in 1987. Today, there are 120 Assistance League chapters in 26 states with over 23,000 members. In 2014-15, Assistance League chapters served 1.5 million people, returned over $38 million to local communities and invested ~3.2 million service hours.

Assistance League of Wichita volunteers work to make Wichita a better place to live and work through our programs. We encourage you to learn more about our chapter and the many ways you can become involved and make a difference.

The Thrift Shop on Douglas is our main source of funding. The shop is staffed and managed entirely by our member volunteers. Donations are always welcome and are tax deductible.

Other funding sources include corporate and private foundation grants and individual donations.
