CASA

For more than 25 years, the national philanthropy of Kappa Alpha Theta and Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation has been Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA). CASA was created by a juvenile court judge in 1977 to ensure that the abuse and neglect suffered by some children at home does not continue as abuse and neglect at the hands of the judicial system. CASA programs are known by many names and are sometimes referred to as Guardian Ad Litem  or ProKids.

Today, CASA is one of the fastest-growing community service projects in the country. CASA volunteers are  ordinary citizens recruited from the community and trained to speak for abused and neglected children in court. Volunteers appear in court with attorneys and social workers to recommend to the judge what is best for the child’s future, thus becoming their voice in court.

Both college and alumnae chapters host events throughout the year to support their state and local CASA organizations. We give to CASA in many ways: as thoughtful advocates, committed volunteers and generous donors. As individuals and as a fraternity, we say: “I am a Theta. I am for the child.”

The Eta Kappa chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta holds various service events to bring awareness to CASA and to raise money for our philanthropies. We frequently hand out candy and cookies on Thursdays during lunch to inform our campus about what CASA works towards. This past year we had "Cornhole for CASA" consisting of a corn hole tournament open to the whole campus and community to raise money for CASA. We plan to have the event again this upcoming fall.
