Sofia has been volunteering with CASA of Travis County going on 3 years now, and is loving the experience everyday! She loves working with the kids she's appointed to, especially on days they see each other and talk about crafts and good books.

Barrie Breed

Barrie Breed - Volunteer Advocate with CASA of Central Texas

Barrie’s interest in CASA started WAY back when her Mother, LeRayne Donelson, along with a handful of likeminded, take-charge, make-it-happen folks in the Texas panhandle started the first rural CASA program in Texas, CASA ’69. Her Mom is also a fun-loving, costume-making, party-throwing “clown.” Thus it’s clear who one of Barrie’s most beloved superheroes is!

*Traditional = Known character like Superman or Wonder Woman. Invented = New superhero you create.
