HopSkipDrive is partnering with CASA of Los Angeles and General Motors to provide free ride-share services to foster youth.
You must be currently enrolled as a youth/FOSTER family with CASA of Los Angeles to participate in this program.
Every young person in care deserves the opportunity to participate in visitation, services, education and extracurricular activities. In Los Angeles, the challenge of distance and reliable, affordable transportation can make access to these everyday needs difficult. Through this partnership, children/youth can have improved access to a number of services and opportunities, including medical visits, mental health services, family visits, court hearings, tutoring, educational and vocational needs, and social events. Rides can be scheduled as frequently as needed.
