Our History

In late 1994, June Gray and her husband moved to Columbus, Ohio, from Den­ver, Colorado, where she had been active in Assistance League of Denver.  She and  her friend, Barbara Terrell who had been active in Assistance League in Santa Clarita, California decided to start a guild in Columbus.

 

On June 9, 1997, June and Barbara hosted a tea at June’s home to explain the concepts of the organization.

 

On November 2, 1997, an Invitational Tea was held at Sanese’s.  Jo Fontana and June Taylor, representatives from the national organization, were on hand to show a video and to explain the organizational purposes of Assistance League.

 

Three organizational meetings were held at Overbrook Presbyterian Church. On March 9, 1998, thirty-nine ladies signed the Char­ter, becoming a guild of National Assistance League. Officers were elected, committees were formed, goals were set, and planned philanthropic programs and fundraising events established.

 

By July 17, 2003, National Assistance League announced that we had met all requirements to become a chapter.  Thus, Assistance League of Metro Columbus was established.  Through many changes, volunteer memberships, projects and resource development activities, our mission and vision have remained constant.  We are a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to helping restore hope to women and children who have suffered adversity.
