Get InvolvedStories that SPARK
On May 18, hundreds of supporters joined Kaleidoscope for our 2017 fundraising event: Stories that SPARK at Ignite Studios. In all, the event raised more than $50,000 for our programs and services to help children, youth and families healing from abuse and neglect!
Young people shared how Kaleidoscope and supporters make a difference in their lives, and we debuted our new video series about Kaleidoscope. The evening included 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.
Thank you to our sponsors!

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.
