We are so grateful for all of the support you give to Kaleidoscope Place programs, students, families, volunteers, and staff. By your support of Kaleidoscope, you truly show us the power of community and relationship. You are all vital to our existence and we simply can’t survive and thrive without you! In the work we do we can never stand alone.

Please know that the gift of your generous heart is the greatest gift of all. You may not have known it, but your generosity has saved lives. We’ve seen so many lives transformed through our work at Kaleidoscope; transformed academically, transformed socially, and transformed developmentally. Together we have set these students up for success and a bright future.

So from the hearts of our children, families, staff, and board members we want to express how grateful we are for you!
