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.

Kaleidoscope of Hope Soirée

"Start a Fire" (Feb 2019)

Please join us on Friday, February 8, 2019, at the Infinity Convention Centre to make a difference in the lives of our youth. Come to learn more about the problems facing our youth today, and work with us to ensure our youth realize their worth and their potential. The evening will be an amazing experience. You will be moved by the presence of our youth, and the power you feel coming together as a community.

Funds raised by this event will go directly to supporting the Youth Services Bureau (YSB), the Sens Foundation, and Say No For Nick. 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 Say No For Nick will channel their funds to further their mission of education, advocation and navigation for youth and families struggling with Opioid and/or Substance Use Disorder.
