Core Values

Assistance League has a rich history of supporting the vision and talents of our volunteers, who all put caring and commitment into action in their communities.  Four core values inform and mold our leaders' and members' priorities and actions:

  • Accountability – We believe in proactive and disciplined stewardship of all our resources to meet our fiduciary and moral responsibilities to our donors, members, community and program recipients.
  • Integrity – We believe that ethical interaction with all of our constituencies is the foundation and the most basic and integral aspect of our organization.
  • Leadership – We believe our effectiveness as a philanthropic organization lies in the collective capacity of our members to identify and respond to community needs with vision, sensitivity, and professionalism.
  • Commitment – We believe our organization is dedicated to providing compassionate and effective service to improve the lives of individuals in need within the St. Louis community.
