About Us

The Assist Local Foundation is a Christian 501c3 organization whose purpose is to provide support through recruiting volunteers to serve local organizations and charities, and connect the various members of local churches to the needs within their local communities. The Assist Local Foundation operates several ministries under the name the Assist Local Network.

The vision of The Assist Local Network is to promote, facilitate, and lead high quality community service events at which the not yet believing community would experience the reality and relevance of Jesus through the service of Christ Followers, and provide to those who participate an opportunity to share the love of Jesus by serving our community, to invite their not yet believing friends, and to building authentic Christ honoring relationships that will transform them into passionate and productive followers of Jesus.

The Assist Local Network concept was born out of an accumulation of more than 30 years of community service work beginning in Santa Ana, CA. In the late 1970’s, Operation Love was co-founded by the founder of the Assist Local Foundation to serve those in poverty in Santa Ana, California. During the time that Operation Love served the community, the City of Santa Ana awarded Operation Love the prestigious LISA Award (Let’s Improve Santa Ana community service award) for having the most effect on poverty and improving the quality of life for those in need.

The mission of The Assist Local Network is to connect various members of local churches to gather as ONE BODY to work together with community members to meet needs within our communities through our following ministries:
