Overview of the Organization
KABOOM! is a national nonprofit that works to achieve playspace equity. Kids who don't have access to play miss out on childhood and are denied critical opportunities to build physical, social and emotional health. So we team up with communities to build incredible playspaces that help give every kid the opportunity to thrive.
Our goal is to end playspace inequity. For good.
We amplify the power of communities to build inspiring playspaces that spark unlimited opportunities for every kid, everywhere.
Our mission: End playspace inequity.
KABOOM! is written in all uppercase characters with an exclaimation point at the end.
