As our culture witnesses dramatic changes in attitudes related to aging, community capability and sustainability, we are poised with expertise and leadership in the field of creative arts and aging.

To reflect this expanded vision, the name of our organization is changing to KAIROS ALIVE!. As a premier provider of community-based arts and learning programs, KAIROS ALIVE! will continue to unlock the creative potential of participants and increase the health and vitality of individuals and communities.
