Have you ever heard of a play desert? Play deserts are locations primarily determined by quality of playspaces, walking distance, density of children and density of low-income households. That is where KaBOOM! comes to play. KaBOOM! works with city leaders through their Playful City USA program to address play deserts, and then offers grants to help them respond to their needs.
KaBOOM! is a national organization that has one simple goal - to protect and preserve playability into the daily lives of all kids, especially in America's low-income neighborhoods. They do this by creating places to play, inspiring communities to promote and support play, and urging the national discussion about the importance of play in nurturing healthy and productive lives. Founded in 1996, the organization has built or improved 16,300 playgrounds through the power of over 1 million volunteer hours. To date, KaBOOM! has served and made an impact for 8.1 million children.
