Social Service League of La Jolla
Darlington House is owned and operated by the Social Service League of La Jolla, a non-profit public benefit 501(c)3 corporation. The mission of the many generous volunteers is to provide housing and meal support to seniors who have lived and worked in the greater San Diego area. Founded in 1929, the Social Service League of La Jolla grew out of the needs of the Great Depression and was officially incorporated in 1947. It is dedicated to providing affordable housing at League House, adjacent to Darlington House, for those who have lived and worked in the San Diego area and who cannot otherwise afford decent housing after retirement. Here, 50 seniors are provided with secure and attractive apartments. Some utilities are included and their evening meal is served in a gracious dining room. A spacious lounge is available for their enjoyment, as are attractive patios.
The volunteers of Social Service League of La Jolla give countless hours of their time and talents in order to to preserve and maintain both Darlington House and League House. The League is the only non-profit on the West coast to provide low-income housing without a government subsidy. To enhance this support, our volunteers also hold fundraisers throughout the year. All funds raised through Darlington House directly support the efforts at League House.
