What You Need To Know

If you have been ordered by the Court to perform community service, and were not assigned by the Judge or the Probation Department to a specific agency, you must contact a Community Service Referral Agency (CSRA) from the CRSA List.

The CSRA will refer you to one of their partnering service providers and take into consideration your availability and your desired location when assigning you to a service provider.

Contact the Court that referred you to community service. Please note that as a separate entity from the Court, the County cannot provide any information on your case.

If you have already signed up with an approved CSRA, contact that agency directly. If you have not yet signed up with an approved CSRA, you can contact the Court that referred you to community service for an extension. The County cannot assist you with an extension.

You may contact a CSRA on the list to see if they have service providers located in your desired county. If one cannot be identified, you will need to obtain written permission from the Judge that ordered you to perform community service to do your community service outside of the County of Los Angeles.

No. However, it is your responsibility to make sure you have the Judge’s order in writing specifying the non-profit agency you were assigned to; otherwise, the Court may not accept your proof of community service completion.

Please contact a CSRA on the list to see if they partner with the organization. Unless you have received written permission from the Court to perform your community service through a specific non-profit organization, you are required to perform your community service through an approved CSRA.

Please contact the community service referral agency that assigned you to a service provider to report any complaints or issues you encountered in your community service.
