What is the mission of your organization?
ProKids exists because of the nearly 4,000 children in Greater Cincinnati who have experienced such severe abuse and neglect that they have been removed from their homes and placed into Hamilton County’s child protection system, most into foster care.

ProKids mission is to mobilize the community to break the vicious cycle of child abuse and neglect by investing in the promise of these children. We do this by recruiting, training, and supporting community members to become Court Appointed Special Advocates, known as CASA Volunteers. Our dedicated CASA Volunteers speak up for abused and neglected children, both in and out of court, advocating for them in all areas of their lives, and ultimately guiding them into safe environments where they can thrive. Through our strong alliances within the child protection system, ProKids maximizes outcomes for all children, creating a new cycle of growing up safe and secure, fundamentally changing the future for each child and for our entire community.

ProKids vision is a safe, permanent, and nurturing home for every child.
