Local to Head Up State Child Advocacy Firm


The California Court Appointed Special Advocate Association (CASA), a private, nonprofit organization that provides training and support to 44 Court Appointed Special Advocate programs across the state, has appointed Alameda resident John L. Lipp the organization’s new chief executive officer. Lipp began his tenure Aug. 1.

“It is an honor to serve as the next CEO for CASA and to join hands with the thousands of Californians who work tirelessly as both volunteers and staff to advocate for the rights of abused and neglected children and youth,” said Lipp. “This is an incredible network of people who inspire with their compassion, selflessness, and commitment to the vision that one day a CASA volunteer will serve every child who needs one.” 

Based in Oakland CASA is a private, nonprofit organization that works to ensure that foster children in California have both a voice in Juvenile Dependency Court and the services, resources and support they need.
