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 Alpha Eta Chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta specifically supports CASA Nashville. Each year, Vanderbilt Theta puts on an philanthropy event called Theta BBQ & Stomp where all of the proceeds are donated to Nashville's CASA chapter. In addition to Stomp, Kappa Alpha Theta raises money for CASA throughout the year in order to ensure foster care children in the Nashville area are receiving the support and care they deserve.
