Historical Sketch

Quota International, founded in 1919, is an international service organization that links members of all ages, occupations, and nationalities in a worldwide network of service and friendship.

With a motto of "we share," Quotarians are known especially for their service to deaf, hard-of-hearing, and speech-impaired individuals and disadvantaged women and children. Quota members share the values of serving and encouraging others, developing friendships, and promoting international understanding.

The Quota Club of Lake Charles was chartered in 1941 and has been active in service to the community. Service projects have included service to Boys and Girls Villages, Calcasieu Women’s Shelter, Children’s Advocacy Center, Deaf Action Center of Lake Charles, Hearing Dog Program, and Pelican Girls State.  

The Quota Club (Quota International, Inc. of Lake Charles) was dissolved in April 2003.
