KaBOOM! loves seeing communities rally behind a playground, dedicating their time and efforts to spread the gift of play to children. They do their best to provide a catalyst that will inspire communities to rethink play and ensure all kids get the play they need to thrive. A playground project develops long lasting community capacities, including organizational skills, leadership, and a belief that residents can transform their neighborhoods. It enhances relationships while improving the physical environment. KaBOOM! works in unison with their partners to bring the benefits of play to many communities across the United States, creating a balance of play and enabling kids everywhere to prosper through play.
