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 child welfare 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:

  • Long Beach 7/19/17 at 6:00pm and 8/8 at 6:00pm
  • West Hollywood on 7/22/17 at 10:00am
  • Culver City on 7/26/17 at 12:00pm
  • Torrance on 8/19/17 at 10:00am
  • Santa Monica on 8/22/17 at 6:00pm
  • San Pedro on 8/31/17 at 5:30pm
