2018 Event: Stories that MOVE

On May 10, 2018, we raised more than $100,000 for our programs. Supporters celebrated our 45th anniversary and milestones along the way, including our groundbreaking wraparound service model and all of our unique programs to empower youth to build families and community. The event included moving stories from four of our youth, updates on our work and our bright vision for the future. Guests enjoyed a happy hour, hors d’oeuvres and a silent auction.

About Kaleidoscope

Founded in 1973, Kaleidoscope is a non-profit child welfare agency in Chicago. Each year, we serve more than 500 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.
