Goals & Strategy

Learn about the organization's key goals, strategies, capabilities, and progress.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To foster community partnerships, coordinate resources, and bring joy to the underserved in our community through our nine service programs.

1. Seek and maintain a diverse, informed and committed volunteer base
2. Align philanthropic programs with community needs
3. Promote the band of Assistance League
4. Maximize resources, effectiveness and sustainability

The delivery of our services depends on our volunteers. Therefore we have a systematic training program for our volunteers. We recruit and sustain a diverse group of informed and committed members. We Identify barriers to membership and have flexible membership plans. We create clear channels of communication within our organization. We believe these actions allow us to constantly increase our capabilities

Assistance League of Salem-Keizer constantly monitors our goals and adjusts our actions to better achieve these goals. We seek new membership throughout our community. We are an all-volunteer organization and our members are invaluable to our program goals. We coordinate with many local service agencies and the school district to adjust our services to the needs of the community. Avoiding overlap of services is very important to us, as every volunteers needs to know that their efforts are put to best use. We continue to be honored with community awards for our services and receive frequent feedback on the value of our philanthropic programs to the greater Salem community. We are never perfect, but we are constantly striving to improve.
