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 holding sessions in the following locations:

  • Canoga Park on 5/31/17 at 12:00pm
  • Sherman Oaks on 6/3/17 at 11:00am
  • Newhall on 6/7/17 at 12:00pm
  • Studio City on 6/14/17 at 6:00pm

To RSVP for one of these information sessions, please visit: or call 323-859-2888. More information is also available at
