Meet our “Not-So-Typical” Volunteers

After dedicating nearly two decades to CASA of Travis County as a volunteer, Karen Manson is preparing to retire, and she reflects on her time advocating for the most vulnerable children in our community with passion, grit, and humor. The tenacity and empathy she's brought to each of her cases is an inspirational call for us all to find our own way to change the world. "I’ve never had a job that was anywhere close to being as rewarding as what I did these last 19 years. When you look at your life, you look to see how you made a difference, and I know with each of these kids I made a difference."
