CASA of Los Angeles’ Help Us Hold Their Hands
A benefit for children in LA County’
s child welfare system located
in the Antelope Valley and Santa Clarita Valley


It was truly a special evening at our annual Help Us Hold Their Hands Benefit for our CASA programs in the Antelope Valley and Santa Clarita Valley at the Hellenic Center in Lancaster on Friday, May 4, 2018. We are proud to have honored CASA volunteers Lynette Crawford and Carolyn Olsen, with the CASA Outstanding Advocate Award; Brenda Robinson from Children’s Law Center and Damien Rosen from County Counsel with the CASA Court Service Award; and High Desert Medical Group with the CASA Child Advocacy Award.

All funds raised from the benefit will go towards our advocacy work in the Antelope Valley and Santa Clarita Valley. In any given month, there are approximately 1,200 cases of abuse and neglect referred to DCFS in this area. We currently have 68 CASA volunteers in the AV and SCV who are advocating for children in LA County’s child welfare system.
