Gen Con is underway in Indianapolis and every year the popular event names a charity partner. This year’s partner is Child Advocates which is Marion County’s Court Appointed Special Advocates, or CASA, organization.
CASA volunteers, provide a voice in court for children who have been removed from their homes. The Marion County branch of this organization hopes to reach the estimated 200,000 people attending Gen Con.
Executive director Cindy Booth says the need for CASA services is growing with the opioid epidemic.
