Each child has a story; every child is precious.

In 2017, ProKids Advocacy Teams worked with 887 children. Thanks to 267 committed CASA Volunteers, we demonstrated an incredible return on investment to this community.

Since 1996, ProKids has used Outcome Measures to track the effectiveness of our work. ProKids is proud of the difference we are making together.
