About Kappa Alpha Theta
Kappa Alpha Theta was founded in 1870 as the first Greek-letter fraternity for women. In support of Kappa Alpha Theta's international service philanthropy, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), the Fraternity endeavors to engage its collegian and alumnae members to provide support for and advancement of court-appointed volunteer advocacy for abused and neglected children.
Today, there are more than 68,000 Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) serving in more than 1,000 state and local program offices nationwide. CASA programs across the country are known by several different names, including Guardian ad Litem, Child Advocates and Voices for Children. Since the inception of CASA advocacy, volunteers have helped more than 240,000 abused and neglected children find safe, permanent homes in which they can thrive.
