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.”

In addition to raising funds, the Delta Eta chapter helps by volunteering as CASAs, making Valentines to give to children in the system, and donating gifts around the holiday season. In 2014, Delta Eta received the Light of Hope Award from Sunflower CASA which is an award recognizing a volunteer that has gone above and beyond for CASA and the children it serves. In 2015, Delta Eta received the Volunteer of the Year award from Sunflower CASA! This award given for exemplary commitment of time as well as a commitment to raising funds and awareness!
