Supporting National CASA

ThetaCASAInitiative_WebsiteHeader2

Beginning with our support of the Foster Parents Plan in 1942 and through our relationship with Heartspring since 1946, the women of Kappa Alpha Theta have focused on making the world a better place by providing children with opportunities to learn, to grow, and to thrive. We remain steadfast in our commitment to honoring and strengthening our legacy of supporting children through our partnership with Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) today.

Kappa Alpha Theta shares CASA’s belief that every abused or neglected child should be safe, establish permanence, and have the opportunity to thrive. We recognize today’s world is full of complex problems that demand collaborative solutions. And, as it has been for almost 150 years, Theta remains an organization where initiative and innovation are fostered and problems are solved.

National CASA and Theta Foundation are partnering to leverage the power of our sisterhood’s collective impact. National CASA intends to demonstrate its effectiveness as an evidence-based practice through a Best Practices Manual and a Performance Measurement System. To assist in this endeavor, Theta Foundation announced a $1 million commitment over the next three years to help National CASA reach its goal of becoming an evidence-based practice and securing its position as one of the most influential and effective child welfare leaders in America. Learn more in our press release.

Over the next three years, Theta Foundation will invite our college chapters to join this special initiative in support of National CASA and children in foster care across the United States. In 2015, 18 college chapters designated funds for National CASA, and we look forward to partnering with more chapters to make a real and positive difference in the lives of youth in foster care or in the court system. Some gifts may be big and some may seem small, but our collective impact will change the lives of abused and neglected children and strengthen our pride in Kappa Alpha Theta.
