“CASA provides admirable service to vulnerable youth across Los Angeles, and having worked with CASA for awhile and seeing first-hand the good work it does inspired me to get involved on a deeper level,” said Brent Giddens, managing partner of the Los Angeles office of award-winning employment and labor law firm Carothers DiSante & Freudenberger LLP (http://www.cdflaborlaw.com/). “I’m looking forward to supporting CASA of Los Angeles and its mission as best I can. I feel honored to have been invited to further help CASA improve the lives, and well-being, of children in our community.”
Founded in 1978, CASA of Los Angeles is a community-supported 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to mobilize community volunteers (Court Appointed Special Advocates) to advocate on behalf of abused and neglected children in the overburdened foster care system of Los Angeles County. CASA’s vision is of a Los Angeles where every foster child has an advocate and the opportunity to thrive. Through committed, highly trained everyday citizen volunteers, CASA brings the voice of a concerned community into the child welfare system. Studies have shown that children with CASAs receive more assistance and support than children without, and are more likely to be adopted or returned to their families and less likely to reenter the child welfare system.
