The Community Alternative Sentencing Program (CASP) is a fee-based placement program for individuals required by the courts or other agencies to perform community service. Offering community service/volunteer opportunities for individuals as an alternative to paying fines and/or incarceration. We work primarily with the courts and probation departments from Los Angeles & San Bernardino Counties.

The Volunteer Resource Center's goals for the Community Service program are:

  • To place court-referred clients in community service settings for constructive completion of required hours;
  • To provide nonprofits with valuable volunteers; and
  • To reduce expenses for government programs which would otherwise have to incorporate these individuals.

Community Service Clients are referred to Volunteer Resource Center through courts, probation officers, attorney's , or city agencies and after completing the intake process, are placed with a non-profit, faith-based or civic organization to complete their hours. IVVRC handles all of the required paperwork, including a completion letter that is sent when hours are finished.

Why Choose Our Volunteer Resource Center's CASP Program?

The VRC has streamlined its process to make the CASP Program easy to understand and easy to navigate; resulting in a very high success rate with our volunteer clients. The VRC provides community service monitoring to more than 1000 adults & juveniles each year. Our Volunteer Resource Center offers several local, state, and government agencies within the E. San Gabriel Valley/W.San Bernardino County/Greater Pomona & Chino Valley's to complete their assigned community service hours.

Save Time

  • We place clients at our partner organizations that are able to accommodate CASP volunteer clients.
  • No calling multiple organizations- we give clients placements that works!
Save Money
  • We verify completed hours so that if a client has finished their required hours, a certified letter of completion is given to the client to return to the court.
  • We ensure completion letters are sent to all appropriate parties in a timely manner to avoid extending court dates.
Benefits Nonprofits and City Agencies
  • Clients are placed based on skill, hours, and location.
  • In fiscal year 2014, VRC placed hundreds of CASP clients in local nonprofits and city/county agencies, completing more than 7,000 hours of community service. This translates to $$$ saved, based on the value of volunteer time for the non-profit agencies.
