CASA of Los Angeles
Once again, EHAM+EHPA wish to spotlight the organization CASA of Los Angeles this holiday season. CASA advocates for children and families in LA County’s overburdened child welfare system by training caring adults who provide equitable access to resources and connections.
While many of us celebrate this time of year with our families, filled with cheer, there are still so many more who struggle at the holidays faced with challenges nearly beyond what we can conceive. Please consider making a CASA child’s or teenager’s wish into a reality this season and share some joy by selecting one or more items from their collective Amazon Wishlist to be sent directly to CASA of Los Angeles. If you think others would want to contribute, feel free to post this on your socials. Your gestures of kindness would mean the world to them.
Happiest of Holidays to you all!

This school is human powered. Extraordinary programs require phenomenal instruction taught by the most generous humans that our kids grow to count on. That means teachers. If we lose those, our kids lose. Lucky for all of us, we have this amazing community who will not allow that to happen.
The district will cover 1/5 of one $120k full time position. We have 2.4 positions to cover any way we can.
Can we count on your support? What can you pledge to ensure that our kids have Music, Art, Theater and a robust inquiry-based instruction that equips them to become critical thinkers? Donations? Hours? Sign up with Amazon Smile? Does your workplace match donations? Please let us know what you can pledge on this quick google form (takes 68 seconds).
