This project will improve the safety, health, and well-being of infants and toddlers in Los Angeles County who have been removed from their parents and caregivers due to allegations of abuse, neglect, or abandonment. These children will benefit from advocacy by specially trained and supported volunteers from CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Los Angeles who will gather information about the unique needs of these children, submit written reports, and make recommendations to the court in the children's best interests.
