Imagine the difference YOU could make in the life of a child who has been abused or neglected. CASA volunteers support and advocate for these children, all over Los Angeles County. CASA volunteers make a difference in the lives of foster children, one child at a time, by ensuring they receive the support and help they deserve. CASA volunteers are trained and then appointed by a judge to advocate on behalf of a child in foster care in both the courtroom and the community.
Anyone over the age of 21 who is committed to helping children may apply to become a CASA volunteer. No special educational background is required, but volunteers must have good communication skills, common sense, and good problem solving skills. CASA volunteers need to have access to a car and be able to show proof of state-required automobile liability coverage, and must commit to driving throughout the county to fulfill CASA duties as needed. Volunteers must also undergo a security clearance and be fingerprinted.
