Shining Stars

Our Volunteers Make a Difference

LACASA is privileged to have a dedicated group of stellar volunteers who give of their time and their hearts. They are committed to helping better the lives of abused children and victims of domestic violence and sexual assault in Livingston County.

All LACASA programs are provided to survivors at no charge, and it is our team of bright volunteers who help make this possible.

Our Volunteer Training Program is conducted twice a year, normally in the spring and fall. Volunteers receive additional training in their chosen areas of service. Our Volunteer Training Program is directed by Community Education Director and Volunteer Coordinator, Nicole Matthews-Creech.

We invite you to explore our volunteer opportunities and find out where your talents and unique interests would make the most difference.
