Since 1989, Kappa Alpha Theta has supported the advocacy work of CASA for Children, our international philanthropy. We share CASA’s belief that all children have the fundamental right to be safe, and to be treated with dignity and respect.
Court Appointed Special Advocates—CASA volunteers—work with children who have been removed from the home due to abuse or neglect. A CASA volunteer provides a voice for the child in the courtroom and the community.
CASA programs across the country are known by several different names, including Guardian ad Litem, Child Advocates and Voices for Children.
Today, more than 75,000 CASA volunteers are serving 240,000 abused and neglected children around the country.
But 400,000 children are still waiting. Waiting for a CASA volunteer. Waiting for a compassionate adult who will keep showing up until the child is safe in the embrace of a loving family.
The children are waiting because CASA for Children at current funding levels can serve only 35% of the children in the foster care system.
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™. Find out how you can help.
