ProKids' vision is a safe, permanent, and nurturing home for every child. ProKids helps our community discover the power of investing in the promise of our children. We recruit, train, and support community volunteers to speak up for children who have been abused and neglected and help guide them into safe environments where they can thrive. ProKids creates alliances within the child protection system to maximize outcomes for our children. ProKids serves the more than 3,000 children in Hamilton County's child protection system. More than 99% of children represented by ProKids are free from abuse. This is a rate we have maintained for more than two decades.
