Get InvolvedStories that SPARK

Join Kaleidoscope and our supporters for our 2017 fundraising event: Stories that SPARK on Thursday, May 18, 2017.

Through a brief program, we will hear directly from young people how Kaleidoscope and supporters like you make a difference in their lives. We will also debut our video series featuring families, staff and other supporters!

The evening will include a happy hour, hors d’oeuvres and a silent auction. All proceeds support Kaleidoscope’s programs for children, youth and families healing from abuse and neglect.

About Kaleidoscope

Founded in 1973, Kaleidoscope is a non-profit child welfare agency in Chicago. Each year, we serve more than 600 young people – ranging in age from birth to 21 – who are healing from trauma. Most of our clients have experienced neglect or abuse, and many have also been exposed to substance abuse, extreme poverty and other concerns. As a result of these traumatic events, our clients have specialized mental health, behavioral, medical and/or pregnancy and parenting needs. Through our services, we ensure their safety, assist them in creating a stable support system, and help them overcome trauma to lead healthy, happy lives. Learn more about our services.
