To create close comradeship, to advance educational, social, and philanthropic interests and leadership training; to encourage spiritual development and adherence to the highest moral standards; and to promote lifelong bonds of friendship
Through the Theta Phi Alpha Foundation, TPA supports two national philanthropic causes:
Glenmary Home Missioners -Glenmary's work is in depressed rural areas of the United States, primarily in the Appalachian Mountains, where they distribute food, clothing, and books to needy persons, and assist in providing medical care, job training and tutoring.
The House That Theta Phi Alpha Built -The House is the newest cause, established in 1993. The common goal is to improve the plight of the homeless. The chapter seeks to provide assistance to organizations that help the homeless, shelters, home building, or neighborhood revitalization projects. This permits all TPA's to help those in need in their own community, while remaining united in our aim and purpose.
