Become a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA)

Become a Court Appointed Special Advocate through CASA of Los Angeles. CASA of Los Angeles is a non-profit organization that trains and supports community members to serve as volunteer advocates for children in the foster care system. CASA volunteers work with a child, gathering information and making recommendations to the dependency court about how to serve the child’s best interests.

CASA volunteers visit the child with whom they are paired, interact with professionals, investigate issues that the court has identified as needing further inquiry, and make recommendations to the court. Volunteers focus on educational needs, permanent placement, medical treatment, and other resources necessary for a successful future.

Donate, Volunteer, Mentor or Host a Child Through Kidsave

Create change so children grow up in families and connected to caring adults.

Kidsave’s vision is a world where every child is nurtured from birth, where the loss of human potential due to neglect is absent, and where people everywhere care enough that all children, even those abandoned, grow up in stable, loving families. This is the work of Kidsave — to create change so forgotten orphanage and foster kids are found — and connected to families and caring adults.
