Stay in the Know
Construction has started in the new building! The concrete floors have been leveled and smoothed and framing is going up, giving shape to the cavernous 22,000 square feet. If you take a walk along 7th Street, you’ll notice window wraps up on the glass: serving a dual purpose, they provide construction crews some privacy while also reminding our soon-to-be neighbors that we need volunteers!
Our New Home
ProKids new downtown space allows for opportunities we didn’t know were possible…creating a home for ProKids that also connects our community of partners, volunteers and the children we serve. The space will be a home for ProKids and a convening center for child protection, and features a flexible design that allows for future growth.
Located at 222 West 7th Street, about 1/2 mile from our court, the 22,000 square-foot space has been designed and is built to include:
- 3-5 open & 9-10 closed collaborative spaces
- Individual workspaces (60-80)
- Flexible training and event space (up to 260-person capacity)
- Cafe space
- Resource room space (to house items for the children we serve)
- Easy access to abundant, adjacent parking for staff, volunteers, partners and guests

The Path to the Future
ProKids is one doorway through which our community helps our children. With more space, more volunteers, and increased sustainable funding, ProKids can help narrow the gaps in the local child protection system.
