Effective Friday, June 29th CASA of Los Angeles will have a new phone number: (323) 859-2888.
Please make sure to change your contacts, direct dial numbers and everything else you can think of with our old number after June 29, 2012. Our fax number will remain the same.
This is the month of transition. It’s the end of Winter and the beginning of Spring. As Charles Dickens put it, “…Summer in the light, Winter in the shade.” It’s the time of year for new beginnings. You see the signs of renewal everywhere. The weather’s warming up. Plants are coming to life. Yes, March is reliably the promise of all good things to come. Will you help us bring this promise into the lives of children in foster care…some of whom know only despair?
We are delighted to acknowledge that February is National Parent Leadership Month! This important initiative seeks to raise public awareness of the need to prevent child abuse and neglect, while promoting opportunities for building and supporting strong, safe families. I’m sure we all support this worthwhile goal…but what are we doing about it?
A recent poll taken by the American Red Cross revealed that, while most people still hold a very bleak outlook of the economy, 67% wanted to give more, or at least as much as the previous year, in charitable contributions over the Holidays. Even as they cut back on their own travel, decorations and gift-giving…
We at CASA of Los Angeles feel very lucky… and thankful… every single day. The reason is simple. It’s our volunteers. Our CASAs are the backbone of everything we do to guide and support unfortunate children caught up in the foster care system. They are our heroes and we cherish each and every one of them.
