Jeremiah Program was awarded a Creative Play Grant from General Motors and KaBOOM! for an Imagination Playground.
Imagination Playground is a breakthrough playspace concept created by architect David Rockwell and uses uniquely shaped foam blocks and loose parts to empower children to design their own course of play.
Jeremiah held a launch event on December 14, 2018 to thank KaBOOM! and General Motors, and to reveal the new playground to the children in our Child Development Center.
KaBOOM! is the national non‐profit dedicated to giving all kids—particularly those growing up in poverty in America—the childhood they deserve filled with balanced and active play, so they can thrive. Since 1996, KaBOOM! has collaborated with partners to build, open or improve nearly 16,300 playgrounds, engaged more than one million volunteers and served 8.1 million kids. KaBOOM! creates great places to play, inspires communities to promote and support play and works to drive the national discussion about the importance of play in fostering healthy and productive lives.
