If is difficult not to get emotional when you see the difference Assistance League of Greater Portland is making in so many lives in our community! Last year alone, over 2,600 children in need received brand new school clothes. And, that is just the tip of the iceberg! We also prepare kits for victims of assault who need to leave their clothing at hospitals for evidence. Then, we make Life Story Books for children leaving foster care and going to permanent families. These precious books are the child's personal history. We also partner with Janus Youth at Cordero, a residential treatment facility for young men.
