The impact

Helping defendants make restitution to their communities

The Court Referred Volunteer Center (“CRVC”) program provides Courts, Probation Departments, and Judicial Authorities community service/community labor options as an alternative to fines and incarcerations for adults and youth who are convicted of infractions, misdemeanors or felonies.
CRVC enables defendants to complete their community service sentences by matching them to nonprofit and government agencies with program needs. CRVC allows defendants to make restitution to the communities they have wronged, provides nonprofit agencies with volunteer labor, and instills in clients civic responsibility and a better understanding of the consequences of violating the law.


It was such an amazing experience to be around so many community members and city leaders committed to make a difference in their community. I’m proud to say Assistance League of Los Angeles is part of such a great movement.

Frequently Asked Questions

About CRVC

The CRVC is a non-profit program that links court ordered clients to agencies to complete their community service/community labor requirements. This alternative sentencing approach allows defendants to contribute to the community.

All volunteers that register with the CRVC program have been sentenced to community service or community labor by local, state or federal judges or other community stakeholders that want third party verification of volunteer hours.

We have seven satellite offices located in court houses throughout Los Angeles County. See further down this page for more information.

Registering for Community Service/Community Labor/HAM Program

All registrations must be done in person at one of our seven offices located in court houses throughout Los Angeles County.

Bring your court order, a valid photo ID, and cash or credit card for applicable fees. Please note no checks will be accepted.

Fees are dependent on the number of hours/days a client is ordered by the Court to complete.
