About Kaleidoscope of Hope

Kaleidoscope of Hope is a focused initiative to raise money in support of youth mental health. The 2011 inaugural KOH Gala was founded in direct response to the alarming increase in youth depression, anxiety, and suicide.

In a concerted effort to reach more troubled youth in their time of need, several local youth charities from the Ottawa area come together every year to raise funds for their respective foundations. No youth should have to languish on a long waiting list - the difference of a day can mean the difference between life and death.

Rise Together Winter Soirée

Join Kaleidoscope of Hope at the newly renovated Brookstreet Hotel Ballroom on February 9th, 2018 for our annual fundraiser, with this year's theme, Winter Soirée. Funds raised by this event will go directly to supporting the Youth Services Bureau (YSB), the Sens Foundation, and We The Parents. YSB channels these funds to their Walk-In Clinic; the Sens Foundation in partnership with DIFD will channel their funds with United Way Ottawa's project step; and We The Parents will channel their funds to further their mission of education, advocation and navigation for youth and families strugging with Opioid and/or Substance Use Disorder.
