July 1, 2021 to June 30, 2022
As we’ve navigated two years of unknowns, this year was full of finding a “new normal.” We were able to have our back-to-school and holiday gift drives for the kids in our programs in a way that kept our staff and families as safe as possible from Covid-19. During this fiscal year, we had two successful Stories that Connect fundraising events—one virtual and, finally, one in-person, as our fundraising is a critical piece to ensure that each family we serve has what they need and deserve in their healing process.
Who We Serve
Children and youth are referred to Kaleidoscope through DCFS when there are allegations of abuse or neglect. The kids we serve range in age from birth to 24 and have severe emotional, behavioral and medical issues that require comprehensive support.
Through our services, we provide the specialized care, nurturing families and other services that children need to be safe, create a stable support system, and overcome trauma to lead healthy, happy lives.
This fiscal year, we served 717 children, youth and young adults across our programs.
