Local Work

In collaboration with over 1,000 volunteers and 111 local organizations, we responded with immediate and long-term recovery efforts for our local community as well as communities in need throughout the world.

In partnership with World Vision, Assist International donates and distributes much-needed supplies- including food, water, furniture, blankets, clothing, and personal hygiene products- to some of the most vulnerable communities on the West Coast.
To date, we have reached more than 310 neighboring fire victim families, distributed over $1.6M in PPE for US frontline workers, and continued responding to the need facing orphan village partners and global health work around the world. From the start of Assist’s community:assist program, over $18M worth of goods have been donated locally.
Paradise fire survivor, Monica Dudar, states, “The generosity of Assist International is amazing… I love how when I see or use an item, it has so much meaning attached to it. We are so grateful.” With the volunteer support and generosity received by the community, we help those in need find hope and joy during difficult times.

Around the World

International Work

The community:assist international program works to empower communities in low and middle-income countries. We work with our partners to provide sustainable income opportunities through donating items such as a sewing machine for single mothers, a bicycle-powered irrigation pump for farming families, or cooking and jewelry-making skills for those seeking vocational training.
More than one billion people live on less than $1.25 per day, and poverty contributes to malnutrition, lack of education, and inadequate healthcare. Providing people with a way to create sustainable income has life-changing effects. With new opportunity, they are able to afford to send their children to school. They can provide enough food for the entire family, and when a member of the family becomes sick, they can afford proper medical care. Since our beginning, we have been a strong advocate of increasing the capacity of local individuals and organizations to help address local needs.
