About

A Court Appointed Special Advocate (or CASA) volunteer makes a difference for children in foster care. CASA volunteers are paired to work one-on-one with a child and ensure they have the services and support needed in the areas important to all children: stable placement, education, and healthcare. There are 30,000 kids in the foster care system in LA and many need the support of a CASA volunteer.

The first step toward becoming a CASA volunteer is attending a one-hour information session, where we describe the role and impact our volunteers have.

We are offering information sessions in the following locations:

  • SoLA on 6/17/17 at 1:00pm, 7/15/17 at 11:00am, and 8/19 at 1:00pm
  • Pasadena 6/20/17 at 6:00pm, 7/20/17 at 6:00pm, 8/3/17 at 6:00pm, 810/17 at 12:00pm
  • Monterey Park on 6/23/17 at 12:00pm
  • South Pasadena on 7/11/17 at 12:00pm
  • Glendale on 7/18 at 6:00pm and 8/22/17 at 6:00pm
