About UsPartner Agencies

Kaleidoscope staff work in collaboration with community organizations, foster parents, educators, medical professionals, legal counsel and mental health experts to provide children and youth with culturally sensitive, strength-based, individualized plans of care.

Our partner agencies include:

  • Department of Children and Family Services. We provide services on behalf of DCFS through a subcontract. Kaleidoscope is one of 20 key agencies in the Chicagoland area to support and work with children and families who come to the attention of DCFS for suspected child abuse or neglect.
  • Cook County Juvenile Probation Department. When youth become involved in the juvenile justice system, they are referred to Kaleidoscope as an alternative to juvenile detention. We provide temporary placement and stabilization services to help these youth stay in home and community settings.
  • Children’s Home + Aid. As a fellow DCFS subcontractor, Children’s Home and Aid is a key partner and collaborator in our work.
