Kids in Focus

Exhibit highlights restorative power of photography for at-risk children

Kids in Focus is a nonprofit organization that inspires hope and fosters positive outcomes in at-risk children starting at age 10. Through the restorative power of photography and with the guidance of dedicated mentors, children are inspired to open their eyes to their own potential as they build the self-worth and resilience they need to overcome the challenges they face.

 

 

Founder Karen Shell is dedicated to empowering at-risk youth to see beyond their circumstances. Her 29-year career as a photographer has continually reminded her of the powerful value of seeing outside oneself. Since 2012, the organization has transformed the lives of hundreds of kids in need, equipping them with essential life skills to make the shift from surviving to thriving.

 

 

FIAT LUX, a new gallery in the heart of downtown Scottsdale, will host a special event Nov. 1 to raise funds for Kids in Focus. Noche para los Niños will be a festive celebration of food, drink and live entertainment and will kick off the exhibition of the enthralling photographs taken by children from Kids in Focus programs.
