What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

The goal of Assistance League of Montgomery County is to be known to improve the lives of the residents in our county.

The strategies used in achieving our goal of improving the lives of residents in our county are: relieving some of the obstacles involved with attendance and performance at school for economically-disadvantaged students, educating children about hazardous substances in and around the home, providing health care information to families of newborns and senior citizens, relieving some of the conditions seniors face in extreme weather conditions, providing educational tools to agencies whose clients have experienced abuse, awarding scholarships to those in need.

Assistance League of Montgomery County has over 240 volunteers who give over 50,000 hours each year to help the county's residents. Our Thrift Shop depends on tax-deductible donations that are then sold in the shop and thus provide 80% of the funding of our philanthropic programs. We also rely on grants, donations, and bequests to boost our ability to serve the community.

The agencies and schools that our chapter with whom has agreements are surveyed every three years. The results of those surveys are then reviewed by the various committee members and recommendations are made to our Strategic Planning committee. Programs and services are adapted to meet the current needs of our community.

The specific areas of our Strategic Plan are currently being met, but Montgomery County is growing so rapidly that our chapter is faced with not having enough funds to meet the growing needs. Some of our programs are undergoing slight changes to address those issues. Membership in our organization is growing, but we continue to devise new ways to increase our membership.
