Great Circle Academy, now part of KVC Missouri, is a behavioral health organization that provides counseling, crisis programs, support, and care to children and families in times of need. In a single year, they can help as many as 27,000 children, youth, and families. Positively influencing children’s lives through hands-on service projects is very important to what we do here at the NorthPoint Foundation, and we actively look for opportunities to accelerate projects to benefit the good of local children. In March 2023, studioNorth and NorthPoint Development team members spent the afternoon painting and setting up brand-new equipment to create a sensory gym for Great Circle Academy. This sensory gym will help the students who struggle with learning disabilities and provides them with a safe space to enjoy and decompress.
